Criminal Defence Solicitors, DPP Law Sponsor Charon QC Podcasts

LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - David Phillips and Partners Solicitors are now sponsoring the weekly podcasts of Charon QC, a leading UK law blog.

The hugely popular blog is written by 'Charon QC'; the pseudonym of Mike Semple Piggot. The blog features podcasts and posts on a variety of legal issues and is widely acknowledged as being a principal blog among lawyers.

Charon QC offers his views on everything in the podcasts from women in law to the future of the legal profession.

His most recent podcast features him talking to Canadian trial and appellate lawyer, Antonin Pribetic; a spokesperson for criminal defence solicitors, David Phillips and Partners, comments: 'The latest podcast on Charon QC's blog offers an insight into the Canadian legal system, the issues of libel, freedom of speech and social media. David Phillips and Partners are thrilled to be sponsoring the podcasts, as Charon QC is a highly renowned and respected law blog which provides an authoritative voice on some of the current legal issues'.

During his exchange with Pribetic, the two discuss the differences between English and Canadian legal systems as well as the subject of libel tourism. The problems social media has introduced into the legal system, including libel for linking to defamatory content from a blog to the immediacy of tweeting and how this poses a problem in law provide food for thought. Internet jurisdiction and freedom of expression feature strongly in the discussion as well as anonymity on the internet.

David Phillips and Partners is a leading UK law firm who ensure that they are always one step ahead of legal developments and exchanging thoughts and ideas with other leaders in the legal profession.

The Charon QC Lawcasts are a great resource for inspiring thoughts on all aspects of English law.
