Our Corrupt Legal System explains why trial lawyers, famously economical with the truth, control evidence; civil hearings take weeks, months or years and in serious criminal cases, 24 anti-truth devices allow more than 50% of guilty accused to escape justice. The lawyer run adversary system used in Britain and its former colonies does not try to find the truth.

This is one of the most important books I have ever read on the common law legal system.” Dr Robert Moles, LLB Hons (Belfast), D. Ph (Edinburgh).

Evan Whitton, former Chief Reporter at The Sydney Morning Herald, writes for a legal journal, Justinian. He has written eight non-fiction books and won the Walkley Award for national journalism five times.
