The fourth season of the ‘Common Law’ podcast features 4 ‘co-counsels’

Four professors from the University of Virginia School of Law are joining the school’s podcast, “Common Law,” as co-hosts with Dean Risa Goluboff for the fourth season.

The show will return on February 3 with Goluboff and Cathy Hwang as hosts for the first episode. Professors Danielle K. Citron, John C. Harrison and Gregory Mitchell will also rotate in co-host duties this season, which is called “Co-Counsel”.

Goluboff co-host for the first three seasons, Professor Leslie Kendrick ’06, is taking a break from podcasting. To fill this gap, Goluboff wanted to introduce teachers with diverse backgrounds who would help choose the show’s guests and topics.

“That’s why we decided to call this season ‘Co-Counsel’,” Goluboff said. “All of our co-hosts bring their own expertise to the table and add their own flavor – and it’s so much fun to record.”

This season’s guests include UVA law professors Aditya Bamzai, Quinn Curtis, Kristen Eichensehr, Mitu Gulati, Andrew Hayashi, John T. Monahan and Megan T. Stevenson. Also featured will be graduates Doriane Nguenang ’21, partner at Baker McKenzie, and Neil Richards ’97, professor at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. Anita L. Allen of the Carey Law School at the University of Pennsylvania, Elizabeth F. Loftus of the University of California at Irvine, Tom R. Tyler of Yale Law School, Jennifer Mascott of George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School and Tara Leigh Grove from the University of Alabama.

Who will interview whom? Make your guesses now. Episodes will be released every two weeks throughout the spring and summer.

“We’ll have episodes on law and psychology, privacy, national security law, administrative law, constitutional law, taxation, sovereign debt, financial regulation and more,” Goluboff said. “There is so much variety, and it was a pleasure to meet jurists who have had an impact on our own faculty here at UVA Law.”
