Want to know how heroin treatment centers in Canada, the Affordable Care Act, President Trump’s new budget, and Henrietta Lacks all fit into one conversation? Welcome to In-Studio from Life of the Law.

Each month we present an investigative feature report and two weeks later our team — a scholar, journalist, producer, and attorney — meet up in the studios of KQED in San Francisco to talk about our investigative reports, the law in the news, and the law on our minds. Join us for this month’s In-Studio conversation:

  • Brittny Bottorff  Attorney and Chair of LOTL Advisory Board
  • Tony Gannon  LOTL’s Senior Producer
  • Nancy Mullane  LOTL’s Executive Producer and Host
  • Osagie Obasogie  Scholar and LOTL Advisory Board Member
