The Hearing Special Edition: The Legal Debates—sanctions are fair and effective

Where do you stand?

Welcome to The Hearing’s first Legal Debate. In this special episode, we feature a blockbuster bout between legal, political, and media heavyweights.

Listen in as the Rt Hon. the Lord Darling of Roulanish and the ‘Queen of Sanctions’ Maya Lester QC go head-to-head with journalist and author, Alastair Campbell, and Monckton Chambers’ own Ben Emmerson QC, debating on whether ‘sanctions are fair and effective’.

Not to be outdone by these debating titans, we’ve put Kevin and special guest Thomson Reuters’ Simon Smith in small booth, giving them a bottle of plonk, and let them unleash their best Graham Norton-esque commentary of on-goings.

Sit back and enjoy.
