Abstract

This collection of lectures and talks by Sydney Kentridge QC includes memorable and often moving accounts of his experiences as an advocate practising in South Africa under a legal system which not merely permitted racial discrimination but required it and in which, for political cases, many of the protections essential to a fair trial had been abolished. Wider topics addressed include the ethics of advocacy, freedom of speech, the rule of law and the selection of judges. Ruth Houghton believes the collection will appeal to those interested in freedom of speech and constitutional law.
