If you’re looking for something to give you a break from study but keep your mind on all things legal, BBC Four is currently showing a short season of programmes under the heading Justice – A citizen’s guide.  Offerings range from drama-documentaries to debates on topical issues.


Particularly recommended is The Highest Court in the Land, which includes interviews with four Supreme Court Justices, exploring the nature of their work, how the Supreme Court functions and some of the more controversial cases to come before them.  The Justices not only discuss the legal issues involved, but the personal and professional pressures of their responsibilities


Most of the programmes are available on the BBC iPlayer the ‘on demand’ service from the BBC that allows you to watch programmes over the internet or download them to watch offline. Links can also be found at the BBC Four website, here, along with a list of the upcoming programmes in the season.
