Zylpha is a second career lawyer who now works for the Law Society in its Canterbury-Westland branch office.  She is also one of five people manning NZLS' new Law Care phoneline (0800 0800 28).  We talked a lot about bullying and harassment and the complex ways of responding to a complex systemic problem, and it was STILL really fun.

In this episode I speak with Justice Kós, sitting President of the Court of Appeal, and at different times a litigator, an academic, and a teacher.  We talked about his reasons for becoming a lawyer (another count for "good at English"), and his reasons for staying one (law as vocation); his perspective on the bench, both from appearing in front of it and sitting behind it; reforms to the civil system that promise increased access to justice and reforms to the criminal system that promise greater justice full stop; how his upbringing as the child of a refugee helped form his view of New Zealand and the importance of its democratic norms and institutions; and what he has learned as a student of those who came before and a teacher of those who are coming up the ranks now.
