Popular Non-Fiction

An anonymous barrister writes a darkly comic, provocative and moving first-hand account of life in the legal system and how it's failing us all. From the criminals to the lawyers, the victims, witnesses and officers of the law, here is the best and worst of humanity, all struggling within a broken system which would never be off the front pages if the public knew what it was really like.  

 

Both a searing first-hand account of the human cost of the criminal justice system, and a guide to how we got into this mess, The Secret Barrister wants to show you what it’s really like and why it really matters.
