Garrow's law( Visual )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

18th Century England - a time of turbulence, when the world was up for grabs and belonged to those who used both hands. Lawyer, William Garrow, came to the courts of London's Old Bailey where defence of the accused and crossed-examination in pursuit of justice was almost unheard of. Bounty hunters roamed the land in search of reward often creating villains where none existed. Judges were in the pocket of politicians and the public gallery of a courtroom was a place to witness spectacle. Garrow would give them that and more. Based on true stories of rape and murder, of thievery and corruption, these are the cases that would shake the justice system to its core. These are the cases of Garrow's Law
