Recorded for WonderCon at Home.
Star Trek has inspired lawyers and judges for decades. It has shown a future with equal protection under the law with every generation having at least one trial episode, and addressed the goal of having a just society. Our panel will explore the issues of the rule of law seen in Star Trek: Discovery, the rights of refugees in Star Trek: Picard, and the many legal issues from Star Trek: Lower Decks. We'll take on issues explored throughout each generation of Star Trek with circuit judge John Owens (9th Circuit Court of Appeals), Steve Chu (DOJ), Bethany Bengfort (Durie Tangri), and Nari Ely (US Courts). Moderated by Joshua Gilliland (The Legal Geeks; Greenan, Peffer, Sallander & Lally).
