  1. No. You cannot record another person without their consent.


  2. It depends. If you are in a courtroom, typically recording will be prohibited. If you are having a conversation where there is an expectation of privacy, most likely you cannot legally make the recording. If you are in a public place talking with someone, and there is no expectation of privacy, it may not be considered illegal. It all depends on the specific circumstances.
