Daily Life Lessons With the Secret Barrister: On The Truth About Justice in an Age of Lies

Meet The Secret Barrister, criminal lawyer and author of former shortlisted Waterstones Book of the Year, The Secret Barrister - the book that unmasked the corruption and deficiencies of a broken British legal system. Now, Fake Law exposes the lies and misinformation spread by those who would seek to keep the general public in i´╗┐gnorance of their rights.

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 an hilarious, alarming and eye-opening defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy. Listen to a free extract of the book below.

Listen to The Secret Barrister's Daily Life Lesson here as they debunk the common notion that law is just for "other people" and not for the "man on the street"; in fact, law is for everyone. At the heart, justice matters, fundamentally, and, to all of us.
