Bringing Down Goliath: How Good Law Can Topple the Powerful (Hardback)Jolyon Maugham (author)
The founder of the Good Law Project details how ordinary people can achieve legal justice in a system which often seems stacked in favour of the rich and powerful, in this inspiring and illuminating volume.
A revealing, empowering vision of how the law can work better for all of us, from Jolyon Maugham KC, founder of Good Law Project.
Our legal system often feels like it only works for the rich and powerful - for those who know how to use the courts to enforce their will and defend their interests. But we can fight back.
Jolyon Maugham KC founded Good Law Project with the belief that the law can also put power in the hands of ordinary people. It has brought a series of landmark cases against a dishonest and increasingly autocratic government and won widespread acclaim in successfully reversing Boris Johnson's unlawful suspension of Parliament.
Now the largest legal campaign group in the UK, Good Law Project is shining light into corners the establishment would rather keep dark - from the failures of Brexit to the still-developing PPE scandal, to the tax arrangements of business giants like Uber.
In Bringing Down Goliath, Jolyon Maugham reveals how these cases unfolded, and exposes the failings of our judiciary system. He shares what drives his inspiration and purpose and offers an empowering, bold new vision for how the law can work better for all of us in the fight against injustice.
