I have been asked by The Lawyer to write a weekly blog on "Bad Law" for their internet edition.
The idea is that it will be like Ben Goldacre's Bad Science newspaper column, though about legal issues rather than science issues.
(I would like to think of it as an internet column, and I will be very flattered if you do so too; but it is really a blog, with a RSS feed, and so on.)
It will be interesting to see how it goes.
I am already writing a book on "Bad Law" about six or so particular areas of substantive law.
A weekly blog will allow me to dissect any legal story in the news, just as I did with the Paul Clarke case.
The first one should be posted on Tuesday, and it will be a balanced and source-based investigation of the recent case where Judge Cherie Booth QC was criticised for her sentencing comments regarding the defendant's religious beliefs.
No purely anonymous comments will be published; always use a name for ease of reference by other commenters.
