A conversation with Carl Gardner

It’s proving to be a pretty busy time for law commentators.

Brexit, doping in athletics, the child abuse inquiry: there’s an awful lot going on in the big, wide world of legal affairs.

Legal Cheek tracked down one the country’s leading legal bloggers, Carl Gardner. A former government lawyer himself, Gardner — who authors the Head of Legal blog and regularly appears as an expert in the mainstream media — really knows what he’s talking about when it comes to big legal developments. So we wanted to get the lowdown on some of this week’s biggest.

In our Hackney recording studio — surrounded by some rather fetching law books — Gardner spoke to me about what’s going on with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and the latest developments in the Court of Appeal Labour party legal challenge.
