Ad Absurdum

Ad Absurdum podcast

Every month Ad Absurdum has a group of real bona fide lawyers look into the fictional worlds of entertainment and try to access how the law works in those tales. It’s informative and silly, much like the law itself.

If you have any questions for the lawyers or have topics you want them to cover, leave a comment.
