THE TOP TEN SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'A powerful polemic' - The Sunday Times 'A compelling, eye-opening read' - Daily Express - Did an illegal immigrant avoid deportation because he had a cat? - Is the law on the side of the burglar who enters your home? - Are unelected judges '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. ___ Writing as S. J. Fleet, The Secret Barrister's first novel, The Cut Throat Trial , is available for pre-order now.
