"The jurors were all leaning out of the box and the judge was intently watching as I ran across the courtroom pretending to be the dog that grabbed my client's leg (re-enacting what had happened to him).

 Episode 46: How Technology is Threatening our Personal Privacy with 2018 Grad, Tor Ekeland "In our country right now, if not the entire world, there is a battle or war going on, on who gets to control the information. In the last 10-20 years, we’ve seen the rise of national surveillance states, not only in the USA but also in Europe, China, and all over the world as technology has gotten very cheap. It’s easy to surveil people particularly now that we are all carrying computers in our pockets, in the form of smartphones, that are constantly transmitting not only where we are on a map but also store all sorts of information about us." - Tor Ekeland, 2018 TLC [...]

TLC Podcast Episode 45: The Power of Place with TLC Faculty Member, Rafe Foreman

 Episode 45: The Power of Place with TLC Faculty Member, Rafe Foreman "It is a very lonely business. It is a very isolating business. As a matter of fact, a lot of people don't have the intestinal fortitude to do it, so they don't practice criminal law or they don't take cases against a county, a municipality, or a police department because it's not politically correct in their world. This (TLC) is a world of lawyers who do the right thing, who do the tough thing, who represent the damned, the downtrodden, and the voiceless. It's a very lonely place and we need a place for those kinds of Warriors and souls to congregate and recharge to let people [...]

TLC Grad, Chad Newman Discovers the Story of a Sacred Relationship and Wins Fight Against Allstate
