The Strange Case of the Law

The cast and set of Garrow’s Law featured in last night’s edition of the BBC documentary ‘The Strange Case of the Law’.

Written and presented by Barrister Harry Potter this accessible new series has already covered the English Law from Anglo-Saxons to jury trial and the forging of personal freedoms by great men of the 17th and 18th centuries. This week Potter ‘explores the incredible transformation that enshrined fairness in English court procedure and put the defence on an equal footing with the prosecution’ – and that necessitated a trip to the Old Bailey in Garrow’s day! 

 

For those with access to the BBC iPlayer you can watch the first three episodes.
