      College of Law has a YouTube channel that contains a lot of past lectures – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnL1OsZzdmxAg-B2Q1pCNPQ . Although I am not certain whether all lectures will end up there and how long it will take for the lectures to get there. It does look like new videos are uploaded quite frequently.
