@BarristerSecret
@BarristerSecret

Now the award-winning writer of the best seller, The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It’s Broken, where this anonymous barrister writes a darkly comic, provocative and moving first-hand account of life in the legal system, and how it’s failing us all. Their Twitter feed is a great commentary on current affairs. We’re particular fans of their legal analysis of popular songs.

@igavels

One for everyone: No gavels in English courts. Ever. It’s that simple… We think their Twitter bio sums things up pretty perfectly:

“English judges have never used gavels. Some people think they do. They’re wrong”.

If you find them… here’s your support network!
