Episode #7: Beijing Pulls Hong Kong Closer with Security Law, Why Some Legal Firms Wrongly Insist on Paper, and COVID Becomes a Part of Life

Hong Kong was in the headlines again this week after Beijing took a drastic step to force a national security law on the semi-autonomous region. We dive into the issue and potential fallout, which includes protests over the weekend in which police fired more tear gas. To fix the city's image, Hong Kong's government has put out a call for PR firms -- but is improving the city's image even possible?

Then we look at a strange argument declaring paper use at law firms superior to digital-only firms. Sorry, what?! We get into that, and a depressing look at what a post COVID-19 world might look like.
