We hope you can join us at San Francisco Comic Con, September 2 to 4, 2016!

We are extremely honored to participate in the first SFCC. Check out our schedule below.

Friday

STAR TREK: NOT EVERY CASE IS THE KOBAYASHI MARU

7:30pm – 8:30pm | Pacific H

The world of Star Trek has presented legal issues in infinite diversity in infinite combinations. Join the away team to discovery the new world of assumption of risk for Red Shirts, whether Tribbles are an invasive species, or if Scotty argue the insanity defense for being possessed by Jack the Ripper, and more from every Generation of Star Trek.

Panelists: Angela Story and Joshua Gilliland

Saturday

BLIND JUSTICE ON THE ROCKS: THE LAW OF DAREDEVIL AND JESSICA JONES

11:30am – 12:30pm | Pacific J

Marvel’s Daredevil and Jessica Jones both focus on lawyers and the practice of law, from Matt Murdock’s creative pro bono community service to Jessica Jones serving a summons. Join us to determine if Karen Page properly acted in self-defense, whether Matt Murdock or Jeri Hogath is most likely to be disbarred, and how the insanity defense applies to those under mind control. Join us when court is in session.

Panelists: Neel Chatterjee and Joshua Gilliland

THE LAW AWAKENS: STAR WARS LAW
4:00pm – 5:00pm | Pacific H

Star Wars is more than a space opera, it is an adventure in the law! Was Han Legally Justified to Shoot First? Did Kylo Ren commit desecration of Anakin Skywalker’s corpse? What are the employee safety issues in Jabba’s Palace? Did Poe lose his ownership rights to BB-8? Could someone be prosecuted for torturing a Droid? Join us to know the ways of the law.
