From the people who brought you the bestselling Confessions of a GP. Russell is a young criminal Barrister. It's his job to defend the people who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law - Petty thieves, career criminals, drug dealers and murderers... The scary son of a famous footballer, whose violent behaviour has got him in trouble so many times he almost knows the law better than Russell. The thief of a marital aid, who has a rather unusual defence. The 27 year old drug addict accused of stealing a push-bike, a chainsaw, a bag full of washing and a small fridge - all at the same time. And Russell's first murder case - a young woman accused of murdering her violent boyfriend. This fascinating insight takes us behind the closed doors of the British legal world. With plenty of drama inside - and outside - of the courtroom, you'll find out how CCTV can make or break a case, how your Facebook page could land you in jail and why on earth they wear those funny wigs!
