Seeing Justice Done is aimed at students and overseas lawyers, and at everyone with the time and inclination to visit the Law Courts and Tribunals of Central London as a spectator.

The book describes where each of them is to be found, and what goes on inside them. Prominent lawyers explain the difference between barristers and solicitors, and there are eighteen interviews with individuals involved, willingly or unwillingly, in what lawyers call the administration of justice, ranging from a High Court Judge to a persistent criminal.

The author, JOHN GRIFFIN, was born and educated in South London, long enough ago to remember the London Blitz and the VI flying bombs. He practised as a “High Street” solicitor, and now sits as a part-time Tribunal Chairman. He is a Director of Solicitors Benevolent Association, the profession’s “widows and orphans” charity, to whom the proceeds of this book are donated.
