One of the girls I study with has been reading it and said she would lend it to me after she's done.

What do you think of it?

It's excellent. I knew the criminal law system was struggling but I had no idea how bad things are. The "innocence tax" in particular was a standout for me.

And the poor pay for most criminal barristers was a surprise!

I'm going to be doing some jury service in the summer so it will be interesting to see things up close and personal...

I thought that it was common knowledge regarding the pay at the criminal bar. Many starting out work for well under the equivalent of minimum wage...

He is rather hilarious on Twitter, so I look forward to reading the book.

Hi there, intriguing thread, considering I was willing to get my hands on this book for a while, after reading several enlightening reviews of it online. Nonetheless, it delves in further into the functioning of the justice system and how corrupt it can be under certain circumstances. How are you finding the book this far? I would definatley be purchasing it soon. I have not a gist if you are aware of this nevertheless theres always a common theme which is legal study, which is what bases an individual to be treated differently or unique to everyone else.

Thank you for the heads up.

I was being indirect in my initial response. Regardless of what career fields one dive into there will always be a subtle hint of negativeness poisoned in there. Lawyers are no exception in this either considering the matter that at times they will have to lie. That is one of many negative aspect of it. I was not instigating that the book is corrupt. Of course not.

They're only trying to feel involved. Mustn't be too cruel.

To the Q, did see it publicised but not criminally leaning so never interested me. Hahaha we law students don't get much time for light reading, I fear.

Lawyers don't lie. They repeat lies.

I second this question Looked it up and from the sample that was available it seemed pretty accessible (but then again I a) skimmed it and b) have no idea if this continues throughout the book).

Hi there, irrespective a lie is a lie, whether one is repeating or stating it themselves. The worst offence is to actually repeat the lie as it then becomes convincing to person B, dependent upon their vested interest and how manipulative they are.

I wasn't assuming you considered the book corrupt. I was assuming you thought the book was about corruption. It isn't.

It's more about the lack of government funding causing chronic problems to the criminal justice system. I suggest you read it
