"...the book of my dreams, the Titanic of the advocacy world (even though it is modestly sized)...Iain Morley has bridged the gap between reading about advocacy and how you actually do it... [the book is] warmly welcomed and should be in every white wig box."
Phillip Taylor, MBE Barrister at Law, in The Barrister
“Quite simply [this] is the best book of its kind. Indeed it is the only book of its kind… Buy this book. Study it. You won’t regret it.”
Professor A.R. Forrest, University of Sheffield, in Science & Justice
