In this Xmas special the wigs, with the aid of a bottle or two of French champagne, bring a close to the legal year with a discussion of three interesting legal controversies. Firstly the wigs discuss the "lawyer x" scandal in Victoria. A tale of what happened when a famous criminal defence barrister turned rogue and began secretly working for the police against her clients. Second, the wigs discuss a recent decision of the NSW court of appeal in HDI Global Specialty SE v Wonkana No. 3 Pty Ltd concerning insurance policies and the pandemic. Very much one for the contract law and statutory interpretation aficionados. Lastly, the wigs discuss a needlessly controversial nsw government policy for the "depenalisation" of drug possession offences. Strap yourselves in and get ready for a somewhat lengthy, slightly rowdy end of year Christmas special.
