The Legal Method: Pathway to Truth or Truncheon for the Powerful?

We live in a society governed by the rule of law. We go to the law to settle our differences and find fairness. The alternative is violence and vigilantism. But is the law all it’s cracked up to be? Is it the best way to find fairness and seek truth? Debating this issue with Heather Brooke will be esteemed lawyer and journalist David Allen Green

David Allen Green is a lawyer and journalist. As a lawyer, he is head of media for City law firm Preiskel & Co where he acted successfully for the defence in the “Twitter Joke Trial”. As a journalist, he is legal correspondent for the New Statesman where his uncovering of the Nightjack hack by The Times was described as “masterly analysis” by Lord Justice Leveson. His blogging at the New Statesman and Jack of Kent has also covered popularising the Simon Singh libel case, exposing the legal mythology of the Julian Assange extradition, and showing the real identity of “David Rose”.
