On today’s show Julie talks to Bill Bogart, University Professor and Professor of Law, and regular media commentator and Huffington Post columnist, about his scholarship on the decriminalization of drugs. Bill’s most recent book, “Off the Street” (2017, Dundurn Press), considers how regulation, rather than criminalization, may be the more effective social response to the use and abuse of substances. “Permit, but discourage” is his mantra, and he and Julie discuss the harmful side effects of prohibition, and the need to consider drug use through a public health lens, rather than pushing it through the criminal courts. In other news: an article in Canadian Lawyer considers how accountants might be able to act as limited legal service providers; the ABA reports on race and gender bias in the legal profession; and Julie’s latest blog post discusses SRL parallels to Serena Williams’ experience of criticism and punishment.
