Sud’s Law blog featured on BBC Radio 4’s Law In Action

Rebecca Finnigan speaks to Joshua Rozenberg about the blog and her pet peeves regarding the portrayal of legal storylines on TV.

Canter Levin & Berg Solicitor Rebecca Finnigan will be on the airwaves at 4pm today as she is being interviewed on the BBC’s flagship legal affairs radio show, Law In Action.

Since 2012 Rebecca, along with several of her other colleagues from Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors, have been writing our Sud’s Law blog, covering some of the most intriguing (and if you’re a lawyer, the most infuriating) storylines on popular TV Soaps such as Eastenders and Coronation Street. The blog has covered adoption struggles, wills, divorce, personal injury claims and at the start of this year, the fallout from Coronation Street’s minibus crash.

To record her interview, with the show’s host Joshua Rozenberg, Rebecca went to BBC Radio’s offices here in Liverpool City Centre, accompanied by Wendy Brown, our Social Media Editor. As well as speaking about Sud’s Law, Rebecca also offered her thoughts about the portrayal of the legal system in TV dramas and on the radio. After she had been interviewed, Rebecca said:

“I was delighted to be approached by the producer of Law in Action to speak with Joshua Rozenberg about Sud’s Law. Joshua was a very pleasant chap, and had obviously joined our Sud’s Law followers in reading the blog.

Shaky legal storylines in soaps continue to be as relevant today as they were when Wendy and I founded the blog two and a half years ago, and I am only too pleased to be able to continue to vent my frustrations on the subject via the medium of Sud’s Law.”

About Law in Action

As BBC Radio’s flagship legal programme since 1984, Law in Action, aims to lead the field in lively, jargon-free but rigorous analysis of the legal stories in, behind, and ahead of the news.

It is currently presented by Joshua Rozenberg, who is one of the UK’s most well known legal commentators, having spent 15 years as the BBC Legal Affairs Correspondent and further 8 years editing the Daily Telegraph's legal coverage.

The programme regularly talks to leading legal figures at home and abroad and also hears from the people caught up in the law about how it affects their lives. Although the show doesn’t report trials for their own sake, it does explore legal issues raised by cases in the news.

Law in Action is broadcast weekly on Tuesdays at 4pm, and is repeated the following Thursdays at 8pm.
