The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It's Broken

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.
