Judge Charles Breyer joins For the Defense Podcast for premiere of Season 3
FOR THE DEFENSE SEASON 3 LAUNCH U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer
In this third season of For the Defense, I will be speaking with three fascinating and experienced judges who have a lot to say about the criminal justice system. We launch today with Judge Charles Breyer. You can access it on Apple, Spotify, or any other platform from our website here.
In the first two seasons, we spoke with great criminal defense lawyers around the country about their most fascinating cases, including the late F. Lee Bailey, Alan Dershowitz, Roy Black, Michael Tigar, Tom Mesereau, Donna Rotunno, and so many others. Then there was a bonus episode with Judge Jed Rakoff (S.D.N.Y.), which was a big hit. So I decided to do this mini-season in which I speak to three judges about the criminal justice system from their perspectives. After Judge Breyer (who hails from San Francisco), next week Robin Rosenbaum joins the show. She sits on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and lives in South Florida. And then we'll conclude the mini-season with Chief Judge William Pryor, another 11th Circuit Judge, who resides in Alabama.
It's not too late to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2 if you missed them (both of which are approved for CLE credits in Florida). This mini-season with judges also has been approved for CLE, and I will give out the code at the end of the third episode.
