A podcast about lawyers and their hidden stories

Episode 08 – Kylie Weston-Scheuber and BottledSnail Productions

Kylie Weston-Scheuber is a barrister at the Victorian Bar and Director of the upcoming BottledSnail Production ‘Famous Cases in Song’. Judges and members of the Victorian legal profession are performing two short and very funny operettas based on the famous cases ‘Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Co’ and ‘Donoghue v Stevenson’ (the snail in the bottle case).

For this episode of Lawyer By Day I spoke to Kylie and cast members Ian Woolford, His Honour Judge Joshua Wilson and the Honourable Associate Justice Mary-Jane Ierodiaconou about why they are involved in BottledSnail, their musical pasts, and how we all might benefit from finding the right creative outlet.

Famous Cases in Song’ is performed as a part of Law Week (14-20 May 2018 – www.victorialawfoundation.org.au) and you can learn more and buy tickets for the show at www.bottledsnail.com/famous-cases-in-song.

The songs performed by BottledSnail Productions in this episode contain lyrics written by New Zealand law lecturer Stephen Todd and are set to the music of Gilbert & Sullivan.

BottledSnail Productions started in 2013. It is a not-for-profit incorporated association and registered charity run by and for legal professionals that aims to generate a significant positive impact on the lives of those who participate in their productions, and make a sophisticated contribution to Melbourne's creative culture.
