He has defended John Stonehouse, Cynthia Payne, Salman Rushdie, Kate Adie, Arthur Scargill, Daniel Sullivan, Gay News, 'The Romans of Britain', 'Niggaz with Attitude', and a pair of foetal earrings.

Review by robertgriffen
For those interested in the workings of law and the justice system both in England and those parts of the World that still follow the broad format of English law administration, this is a fascinating insight into what has happened over a number of years . Geoffrey Robinson has had a varied career not only in the English Courts but also Commonwealth Courts involving cases that have made history throughout the World.Although parts of the book relate events of national and international renown, it is the personalities that he describes that brings to life the events described.
