Legal TV UK online / Englisches Online Juristenfernsehen is a TV channel which has apparently been online (and on Sky) since February. It calls itself ‘The law firm in your living room’.

  4. Be careful, or you might get googled.
    (In the new meaning of legally gobsmacked for using a naughty and prohibited word).

  5. Actually I think that’s a good idea… Google off! Stick it up your google!
    It would certainly avoid the stipulated legal penalties for “Beamtenbeleidung” here –
