THE TOP TEN SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Could the courts really order the death of your innocent baby? Was there an illegal immigrant who couldn't be deported because he had a pet cat? Are unelected judges truly enemies of the people?

Most of us think the law is only relevant to criminals, if we even think of it at all. But the law touches every area of our lives: from intimate family matters to the biggest issues in our society.

Our unfamiliarity is dangerous because it makes us vulnerable to media spin, political lies and the kind of misinformation that frequently comes from loud-mouthed amateurs and those with vested interests. This 'fake law' allows the powerful and the ignorant to corrupt justice without our knowledge – worse, we risk letting them make us complicit.

Thankfully, the Secret Barrister is back to reveal the stupidity, malice and incompetence behind many of the biggest legal stories of recent years. In Fake Law, the Secret Barrister debunks the lies and builds a defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy that is as entertaining as it is vital.

A bit of a rant but worth a listen

Interesting book, mostly well argued and got better as the book went on. Underlying is a thesis that the law is a better part of our system than any other and does not take into account the usual bell shaped curve of competence. Putting the rant to one side the book raises a large number of troubling issues.

Great Book - Bad Audio Recording

This is a great book, however the audio recording has a lot of feedback and sounds robotic.
