Summary:

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.

  • Jerusha L.

    This is a must listen for anyone and everyone, particularly those in the UK due to the legal system referred to. The book covered so many subjects that I knew could not be as presented in the news so I was gratified but equally angered and saddened to be right. Democracy and decency are in a calculated decline, by design which is depressing to say the least. Despite the subject matter it is do well written and easy to understand, especially as the narrator is just brilliant, animated yet clear. This is not dry or boring it is fascinating and essential.

  • John V.

    The topic was interesting. But it didn’t relate to the country that I wanted to listen to therefore I was disappointed

  • Anonymous

    Beautifully put arguments have opened my eyes, both from fright and from understanding. I cannot think of anyone who shouldn’t understand it all, or who won’t learn something from this book. Would make an excellent gift. Well read in a well animated voice, not too much and not too little. Good job, well done!
