Just Law Summary

Just Law by Helena Kennedy

Acute, questioning, humane and passionately concerned for justice, Helena Kennedy is one of the most powerful voices in legal circles in Britain today. Here she roundly challenges the record of modern governments over the fundamental values of equality, fairness and respect for human dignity. She argues that in the last twenty years we have seen a steady erosion of civil liberties, culminating today in extraordinary legislation, which undermines long established freedoms. Are these moves a crude political response to demands for law and order? Or is the relationship between citizens and the state being covertly reframed and redefined?

Just Law Reviews

Remarkable - a passionate, cogent and eloquent defence of the idea of law as the framework for a just society... Vitally important * Financial Times *
Highly readable... Startlingly topical * Sunday Telegraph *
Powerful and prescient * Daily Telegraph *
This is a good book, well-written, pacey and to the point * Sunday Times *
Admirable... Without Helena Kennedy's passionate defence of the rule of law we might be completely in the hands of an uncaring government * Daily Mail *
