    1. Reading a book by Helena Kennedy fills one with some degree of trepidation, usually because I always hear that she is the kind of women who refuses to take prisoners in any debate she may enter Well that isn t always a bad thing, however it does conjure within me images of what I may unexpectedly find when I do read her work However, when I did finally pluck up enough courage to pick up her book, I couldn t have picked a better book to read It is not only because I have a passing interest in the [...]


    2. One of my favourites because Helena Kennedy questions the fairness of the British justice system And, because of the similarities, the questions that she raises are equally applicable to the Australian system Her themes include questioning the extent to which the state is undermining civil liberties and human rights Writing about race she says We are seeing a serious retreat from civil liberties, mimicking what is taking place in the United States, and experience has taught us that whenever ther [...]


    3. Despite this book coming out in 2005, Helena Kennedy s Just Law provides a great recap for information on many of the key and prominent changes to civil liberties that have happened in the UK in recent years, as well as providing a good historical base for why changes have been made and by whom I particularly found the chapter on Criminalising The Poor to be still relevant when discussing and drawing conclusions on the current state of sanctions imposed upon benefit claimants, and the chapter ca [...]


    4. I think if I had not studied and had a reasonable amount of prior knowledge to many of the topics I would have scored this higher, I kept getting distracted critiquing her approach, such as the way certain legal debates like the use of the term rule of law was not unpacked and extremely simplified The book took me a long time to read and while, I discovered that a lot of debates around the criminal justice system have no moved on from the early 2000s I didn t feel that I learnt anything new Howe [...]


    5. An absolute corker of a book that tells the story of how the Law has been emasculated under New Labour stupid politicians My silly words cannot do justice to it as I am too exhausted People read it folks A proper Review will follow when I get my energy back.
