Legal Podcasts

OILS has recorded a large number of podcasts that can only be accessed by members. In them, alumni share their experiences, observations and insights of the law. The recordings cover all ages and circumstances, from Partners of major law firms to law students applying to become seasonal clerks. The topics of conversation are equally diverse. The target markets for these recordings are IGS secondary students and alumni law students. These podcasts are an enduring gift from one generation of alumni to the next.

 

Please note that only members of the Ivanhoe Grammar family or OIGA alumni are entitled to listen to these podcasts.

 

You can use the category filters to find a topic you would like to listen to. New podcasts will be added progressively.
