May 22nd, 2006 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Educational Podcasts

American University Washington College of Law introduced podcasts with the arrival of the 2005 class, and after a school year of podcasting, the College is considers the program a success. To date, the 200+ episodes have been downloaded almost 65,000 times.

“The primary goal of WCL’s Office of Technology,” says Dean Claudio Grossman, “is to deliver event content, interviews with VIPs, and course material to students and faculty in many formats.”

WCL recognizes that, due to distance and time constraints, students cannot possibly attend all of the many events offered at WCL. Podcast speakers have included former President Jimmy Carter, Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Antonin Scalia.

Topics have included “Looking Ahead to the New Supreme Court Term,” “The Big Chill: Could You Land in Jail for Covering the News?,” “Assisting Iraq‚Äôs Government Draft a New Constitution,” “The WTO and Developing Countries,” “What is the Talmud: Investigating Sources in Jewish Law,” “The Reaffirmation of Custom as an Important Source of International Humanitarian Law,” and many more.To accommodate WCL students‚Äô busy schedules, the school makes virtually every event available via podcast.

Episodes and collections can be found at the AUWCL podcast site.
