You loved L.A. Law. You thought Twelve Angry Men was the best movie you ever saw. When the O.J. trial was over, you wept. Now's your chance to listen to WGN's award-winning legal talk show "Legally Speaking" with Chicago attorney Karen Conti.

Even if you don't know the difference between a plaintiff and defendant and you think that habeas corpus is a restaurant in Greek Town, you'll love listening to Karen give her legal insights on current news stories and interview interesting lawyers and litigants. And, during her "Ask the Lawyer" segment, she will take your calls on every imaginable legal topic.

Some of the topics you might hear on the show:

- The release of the Lockerbie bomber
- Michael Jackson's legal legacy
- The Drew Peterson saga
- United States Supreme Court updates

The show is not a technical discussion for lawyers only! It is a lively discussion of the interesting aspects of our legal system using examples from political, sports, and celebrity news and, of course, listener call-ins.

In 2009, Karen and the late Greg Adamski won a Meritorious Achievement Kogan Award for their popular "You are the Jury" segment, in which the partners argue a real fact pattern and listeners call in with their verdict.
