Sarah Langford is a barrister who represents the bad, the vulnerable, the heartbroken and the hopeful. She must become their voice: weave their story around the law and tell it to the courtroom.
With remarkable candour, Sarah describes eleven cases which reveal what goes on in our criminal and family courts. She examines how she feels as she defends the person standing in the dock. She tells compelling stories that are sometimes shocking and often heart-stopping. She shows us how our attitudes and actions can shape not only the outcome of a case, but the legal system itself.
