Synopsis

Has the public finally lost all respect for the legal profession? Practising lawyer Michael Bradley certainly thinks so. And, whats more, he argues that the profession has only itself to blame. He goes further: lawyers reward themselves according to the second hand on the clock imposing absurd charges on their hapless clients and not according to their perceived value as legal counsellors. As a result the practice of the law has become a commodity, sold by the worlds most highly remunerated salesmen. Tracing a lurid history from a time when lawyers were not exactly liked but at least trusted to their present-day incarnation as time-billing rip-off merchants, Bradley urges the industry to wake up to itself and do justice to its ancient values.
