Justice on Trial

Chris Daw QC has been practising criminal law for over 25 years, navigating Britain’s fractured justice system from within. He has looked into the eyes of murderers, acted for notorious criminals, and listened to the tangled tales woven by fraudsters, money launderers and drug barons. Yet his work takes place at the heart of a system at breaking point – one which is failing perpetrators, victims and society – and now he is convinced that something must change.
Drawing on his own fascinating case histories and global reporting, including the 2019 London Bridge attacks, Alabama’s prison system and one of Britain’s most dramatic mass shootings, Daw presents a radical new set of solutions for crime and punishment.
