內容簡介

內容簡介 「我是一個律師。」這是一個需要結合各種行業技能的工作:我同時需要是個諮商師、社工、比腕力選手、解救人質談判專家、司機、會計師、咖啡師、代理父母。還有一次,....呃...我不確定這個職務有沒有正式的名稱,總之,就是「肩負重任告訴獄中犯人他女友得了淋病」的人。歡迎來到律師的世界。你會聽到很多法庭上的故事:有的很好笑、很多很感人,還有一些則會改變你的一生。該怎麼,為你覺得明明就有罪的虐童被告辯護?又該怎麼,向你覺得根本無辜,卻被判了10年徒刑的人轉達判決結果?法律到底是什麼?我們為什麼需要它?還有法官到底為什麼要戴那些蠢到不行的假髮?從犯人到律師,從受害者到目擊證人還有員警。在這裡,人性的善與惡一覽無遺,都在這個殘破的體制內掙扎角力。本書會告訴你司法系統為何會落到如此下場,還有為什麼了解這些事與你息息相關,至關重要。THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Eye-opening, damning and hilarious' Tim Shipman, author of All Out War and Fall Out "I'm a barrister, a job which requires the skills of a social worker, relationship counsellor, arm-twister, hostage negotiator, named driver, bus fare-provider, accountant, suicide watchman, coffee-supplier, surrogate parent and, on one memorable occasion, whatever the official term is for someone tasked with breaking the news to a prisoner that his girlfriend has been diagnosed with gonorrhoea." Welcome to the world of the Secret Barrister. These are the stories of life inside the courtroom. They are sometimes funny, often moving and ultimately life-changing. How can you defend a child-abuser you suspect to be guilty? What do you say to someone sentenced to ten years who you believe to be innocent? What is the law and why do we need it? And why do they wear those stupid wigs? From the criminals to the lawyers, the victims, witnesses and officers of the law, here is the best and worst of humanity, all struggling within a broken system which would never be off the front pages if the public knew what it was really like. Both a searing first-hand account of the human cost of the criminal justice system, and a guide to how we got into this mess, The Secret Barrister wants to show you what it's really like and why it really matters.
