New Chambers Publication

Robert Spicer’s new book – LAW – has now been published in electronic form on the Amazon Kindle store.

The book aims, in general, to set out a highly critical examination of the English legal system and legal profession. The politicised nature of the critique distinguishes the book from others and should provide an alternative approach which is currently lacking.

Specifically:

  • To continue to emphasise the overwhelming importance of the illegality of the Iraq war.

  • To expose, explain and illustrate the central role of money in the English legal system.

  • To argue, on behalf of non-lawyers, for the simplification, demystification and clarification of English legal rules.

  • To examine the growing involvement of charity in the English legal system.

  • To examine English law and lawyers from the perspective of class justice.

  • To restate and to publicise neglected voices of dissent on law and lawyers.

  • To discuss the human rights industry.

  • To illustrate, with recent examples, the significance of health and safety law in the English legal system.

  • To put forward realistic suggestions for alternative legal practice.

  • To discuss the meaning and significance of dissent in the context of legal practice.

  • To challenge existing preconceptions and accepted wisdom on the role of English law and lawyers.

  • To discuss the effect, in a historical context, of revolutionary changes in society on law and lawyers.
