The Legal Ease, a podcast produced by the University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center’s Louisiana Law Review, is entering its third season with new host Willie Walsh and co-host Joe Cooper. The show includes academic discussions about current legal issues with a fun talk-show format that makes the material accessible for lay people and busy legal practitioners.
Founded in 2015, the podcast was the brainchild of LSU Law Center graduate Alex Robertson, now an attorney with Irwin, Fritchie, Urquhart and Moore in New Orleans.

On a recent Monday morning at the LSU Law Center, third-year law students Jack Zeringue and Cam Miller are putting together the latest episode of “The Legal Ease,” the Louisiana Law Review podcast. They’re about to have an academic discussion about a technical legal issue, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a little fun.
“The Legal Ease” is in its second season. Zeringue and Miller say they want the show to be informative and entertaining for law students, academics and legal practitioners, while also shedding light upon legal topics in the news that interest the general public.
LSU Law Center graduate Alex Robertson suggested starting a podcast as part of his pitch to be the law review’s online editor for the 2015-2016 school year. Robertson, now an attorney with Irwin, Fritchie, Urquhart & Moore in New Orleans, is a fan of the medium, and he helped create podcasts as part his job with a web design firm before entering law school.
