Witness: an Investigation into the Brutal Cost of Seeking Justice description
Born of Louise Milligan’s own brutal experience as a witness in the Cardinal Pell case, Witness is at once a gripping, powerful, meticulously researched critique of our criminal justice system, and an eloquent and empathetic argument for change. Including the accounts of victims retraumatised by their courtroom experience alongside expert opinions and analysis from legal practitioners - including defence counsel, prosecutors, judges and academics - Witness lays bare the flaws of our adversarial system, and the devastating impact they can have on the delivery of justice.
