“good practical knowledge of British law” [STUD] 

Following the Baker Street Irregulars Weekend, the BSI Press is cranking again. We picked up three new volumes, and we're pleased to have the editors of one of them with us in this episode.

Will Walsh, BSI ("Godfrey Norton") and Donny Zaldin, BSI ("The Last and Highest Court of Appeal") are the editors of Canon Law: Lawyers, Law, and the Sherlockian Canon. This is the second in the BSI Press Professions Series (the first being Nerve and Knowledge).

We talked with them about how they selected contributors, what the state of Sherlockian-legal scholarship was until then, and about their star contributor.

We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series. Toward the end of the episode, you'll find the latest Canonical Couplet. See if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize.
