Mostly Guilty: A Low-Flying Barrister’s Working Life


Mostly Guilty deals with the workings of the lower rungs of the Australian legal system. It’s about the down-to-earth cases that happen daily in Magistrates’ Courts. It does so through the experiences and anecdotes of a low-flying criminal barrister. While the cases are from Victoria, the book makes reference to other states and has relevance and interest Australia-wide. The style is light, punchy and informal, with lots of direct speech and many funny yarns. Some of the book is tongue-in-cheek (and even politically incorrect) but it also makes serious points throughout. It’s entertaining as well as informative. Most legal memoirs are by big-shot advocates or retired judges. Mostly Guilty is different, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.
