'Chris is a powerful force for good in the national debate on criminal justice.' -The Secret Barrister'Extraordinary' - Krishnan Guru-MurthyUpdated with a new afterword on law and the global pandemicChris Daw QC has been practising criminal law for over 25 years, navigating Britain's fractured justice system from within.

He has looked into the eyes of murderers, acted for notorious criminals, and listened to the tangled tales woven by fraudsters, money launderers and drug barons.

Yet his work takes place at the heart of a system at breaking point - one which is failing perpetrators, victims and society - and now he is convinced that something must change. Drawing on case histories and global reporting, and published with a new afterword on law in the global pandemic, Justice on Trial presents a radical set of solutions for crime and punishment.

By turns shocking, moving and pragmatic, Daw's account offers rare inside access to a system in crisis and a roadmap to a future beyond the binary of good and evil.
