You may not wish to think about it, but one day you or someone you love will almost certainly appear in a criminal courtroom. You might be a juror, a victim, a witness or – perhaps through no fault of your own – a defendant. Whatever your role, you’d expect a fair trial.
I’m a barrister. I work in the criminal justice system, and every day I see how fairness is not guaranteed. Too often the system fails those it is meant to protect. The innocent are wronged and the guilty allowed to walk free.
In The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It's Broken I want to share some stories from my daily life to show you how the system is broken, who broke it and why we should start caring before it’s too late.
A Sunday Times top ten bestseller for twenty-four weeks.
‘Eye-opening, funny and horrifying’ – Observer
‘Everyone who has any interest in public life should read it’ – Daily Mail

À propos de l'auteur

It seems that now, if you look behind the very thin surface veneer of any public service in the UK you find the same things - chaos and Not Enough To Go Round. Why? It is one of the richest countries in the world, and the expectations and sense of entitlements of its citizens cannot exceed the ability of the state to deliver them to the extent that they appear to.
We need more books like this. We need them to be thrust not only into the hands of all politicians, but of teachers too, of all influencers. It's time to get angry!
The Secret Barrister is packed with information and detail and a forceful argument is sustained throughout the book. If this leads to a good deal of ranting, it is because the author feels genuine anger and passion about the problems. I must confess, however, that I was put off by the author's forced humour and his/her fondness for flippant colloquialisms. S/he also seems unable to decide whether the book is intended as a serious contribution to the criminal justice literature, a taster for first year law students or a pot boiler for popular consumption. Though somewhat idiosyncratic, The Secret Barrister is nonetheless firmly based on the author's own experience of working in the criminal courts and on his/her knowledge of the academic writing and research on the subject.
