The Secret Legal Adviser

The Secret Legal Adviser

Pandora (not her real name) is a legal adviser in a magistrates’ court. Legal advisers are solicitors or barristers who are responsible for advising magistrates in court on law, evidence, practice and procedure, for ensuring all who appear have a fair hearing and helping those who are unrepresented to present their case.  Here we present extracts from Pandora’s lockdown diary.
