Waterstones Says

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.

Our legal system often feels like it only works for the rich and powerful. But we can fight back.

Jolyon Maugham KC founded Good Law Project in 2017 with the belief that the law can also put power into the hands of ordinary people. Already 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 KC reveals the story behind these landmark cases and the hidden fault lines of our judicial system. He offers an empowering, bold new vision for how the law can work better for all of us in the fight against injustice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Maugham doesn't just speak truth to corrupt and compromised power, he takes the fight to their front door and won't be ignored. Inspiring and illuminating - James O'Brien

A mighty blast . . . This is how to challenge the powerful - Owen Jones

With astonishing panache and determination, Jolyon Maugham has taken on some of the most powerful and corrupt interests in the UK - and won. This is his remarkable story - George Monbiot
