Lizzie O'Shea points out that our system of law is not the only one. Barrister Julian Burnside QC explains how the adversarial system works, using the metaphor of a sport game. There are two opposing sides and an impartial umpire. Former Justice of the High Court Michael Kirby compares our adversarial system to the European inquisitorial system. He points out that while our system is a good one, its downfall is that it is very expensive. Justice Susan Kenny, the Federal Court of Australia comments that one of the problems of trials becoming increasingly expensive is that she no longer sees as many small cases. This is unfortunate as the smaller cases can often tested the validity of the existing law. Julian Burnside QC suggests a scenario that involves using pre-judgement, and one that doesn't. He asks, what is more important, coming to the right solution, or using the right method? Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by reminding us what defines the adversarial system.

Some would say that the story of gentrification is the story of America: one group of people live in one place, and another wealthier group moves in and forces the other group out. Nowadays, one tell-tale sign that gentrification is happening in a city is pretty simple: hipsters move in. Portland, Oregon - aka the mecca of hipsters - has real people being affected by changes that gentrification brings. Kamau Bell travels to Portland to meet the people affected by the rapid changing of their neighbourhoods while also talking to the hipsters who've moved there to ask: is it a coincidence that the place some say is the coolest in the country also happens to be the whitest in America?

Lizzie O'Shea talks about Klaus Rabenalt, who worked in an asbestos mine. Years later, after he moved to Melbourne, he was diagnosed with a dust disease. Solicitor Peter Gordon worked on the asbestos cases involving CSR and James Hardie. He explains how the Klaus Rabenalt trial progressed, and that it was the first time they managed to win an asbestos dust disease case. He explains that civil cases are not just about cash payouts, they are also about justice and changing corporate or workplace practices. Fiona Mcleod SC explains that the corporate veil protects owners of a company from liability. She discusses how in some cases the law allows us to reach behind the corporate veil and access the owners and their money when the company has acted badly. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by revealing her own passion for civil law and how it can be used to make our society a safer place. Find curriculum links at http://legalbriefs.com.au

United Shades of America follows comedian and political gadfly W. Kamau Bell as he accepts the challenge to boldly explore the far corners of the country and its various groups and subcultures. The KKK, a club known for hatred, violence and bigotry was once a thriving organisation in the United States, but as times gone on, there's been a steady decline in numbers over the years. Unfortunately, there are people looking to change that and claim to have a new message about white pride. Kamau Bell sees firsthand who these men and women are and hear all about the "new face" of the KKK. (S.1 Ep.1)
