  1. Representing the reprehensible: Australian criminal lawyer Andrew Boe | RNZ

    How tough would it be to defend a nationalist politician whose views would see you and your family deported from the country they now call home? Australian criminal lawyer Andrew Boe arrived in Queensland from Burma- now Myanmar- with his parents as a child. He’s risen to become one of Australia’s top barristers, and in his book The Truth Hurts he reflects on his three decades in the law, some previous clients (including serial killer Ivan Milat and right wing politician Pauline Hanson) and what is wrong with Australia’s criminal justice system. With an increasing interest in indigenous issues and a track record of representing some of the most vulnerable people in society, as well as some of the most notorious and privileged too, he sees that not everyone is treated equally in the eyes of the law.

  3. Cannabis referendum: Juliet Gerrard explains | RNZ

    As the general election draws near so to does the referendum on legalising recreational cannabis. The Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill would allow people aged 20 or over to buy up to 14 grams of cannabis per day, but only from businesses with a licence to sell it. It would make it legal to grow a certain amount of cannabis on private property. In a bid to make those voting in September as informed as possible - the Prime Minister’s chief science advisor Juliet Gerrard has released information on the possible impacts of legalising cannabis. Juliet Gerrard joins Kathryn Ryan to talk about the work.
