About this title:

Synopsis: “A scathing indictment of how law is taught, practiced, and administered in this country . . . One of the best books ever written on the law.”—The Denver Post
 
Renowned trial lawyer Gerry Spence takes an in-depth look at the American justice system and reveals a terrible truth: If you don’t have power or money, then you likely won’t receive justice either. The wealthy buy their way out of trouble, while the poor are punished. In an effort to combat this corruption, the author devises a number of reforms, tackling issues in every area of the system from law school to the courtroom.
 
“Passionately eloquent and innovative, trial attorney Spence here argues the evils of the justice system itself and its abuse by monied interests such as corporations, ‘the most cruel, calculating, and accomplished criminals of all time.’”—Publishers Weekly

From Library Journal: Spence, one of America's most famous trial attorneys (he represented Karen Silkwood), takes on the whole legal system--the law schools, the attorneys, the judiciary, and so on--and tells where he believes it is going wrong. Justice is reserved only for those with wealth and power, he says, and most lawyers only care about top-dollar corporate clients, not about ordinary citizens. His ideas for improvement range from idealistic to impractical (such as drafting judges from a pool of trial lawyers). Spence pulls no punches in giving his views, and often becomes bombastic: He appears to consider himself one of the few good lawyers left. Readers will find some good information about the legal system, and more about Spence than they may wish to know. An optional purchase for public and law libraries.
