Sept. 7, 2016 - The University of Houston Law Center and KUHF today launched "Briefcase," a weekly radio broadcast that explores a variety of legal topics of interest to the general public.
Each one-minute segment is hosted by Dean Leonard M. Baynes and will feature a range of speakers, including Law Center faculty, alumni, students, and various legal experts to discuss such pressing topics as national security, public health emergencies, freedom of speech, and challenges facing crime labs. The program's pilot feature dealt with credit card companies targeting college students, despite regulations.
"As a premier urban law school, it is imperative for our faculty, alumni, and students to share their expertise with the larger Houston community," said Baynes. "Briefcase radio allows the Law Center to showcase its expertise and provide cogent information on legal issues to the public. It is even more important to do this now as legal issues dominate the discourse on thorny societal challenges like immigration, income inequality, and the provision of health care as well as many other issues."
Briefcase will air on Wednesdays at 5:49 a.m., 7:49 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 2:39 p.m.
