News release from Penn Law:
The University of Pennsylvania Law School has launched a new podcast, Case in Point, a series that takes a dynamic new approach to podcasting in higher education and the law.
With over one billion subscriptions through iTunes alone, podcasts are quickly becoming one of the go-to sources of information and entertainment for a tech-savvy audience. A unique resource, Case in Point is produced by a one of the nation’s top law schools and convenes scholars from Penn Law with newsmakers, practitioners, and journalists from around the U.S. and the world. The series delivers smart, accessible conversations that bring experts’ knowledge to bear on major issues of law, policy, business, and culture.
“Through Case in Point, listeners will gain insights into topics where the law significantly intersects with their day-to-day lives, from their health insurance coverage, to finance, to the schools their children attend,” said Wendell Pritchett, Interim Dean of Penn Law and Presidential Professor. “This podcast is an opportunity for us to bring the engaged work of Penn Law and other leading experts directly into listeners’ earbuds, anywhere in the world.”
“Case in Point transforms the connection between the latest scholarship in the law and solutions to the key issues in our society,” said Paul G. Haaga, Jr. L’74, WG’74, a member of NPR’s board of directors who served as NPR’s interim CEO from 2013 to 2014. “Through its innovative format, the series has created a lively venue where audiences can access an array of experts addressing topics that impact all of us.”
While many academic podcasts repurpose lectures and other events for broadcast, each episode of Case in Point contains wholly original content developed expressly for the medium. The program is produced at Penn Law, with Penn scholars and a host appearing in-studio; outside experts participate in the program remotely via video link. Episodes are available in both video and audio-only formats in iTunes, SoundCloud, and via caseinpoint.org.
