Following the success of The Rt Hon Lord Justice Simon Brown's (Chatham 55) first volume of memoirs, Playing Off The Roof & Other Stories, his follow up, Second Helpings, is being published on 15 February 2021.
Exuberantly revisiting his early years in National Service, at Oxford and as a young barrister, Simon Brown continues his life story with anecdotes from his time at the Bar and on the bench, with stories of Paddington Bear, Nigel Lawson and Mozart at the Warsaw opera. He considers such thorny problems as the 2019 prorogation judgement and whether trial by jury might be dispensed with to clear the mounting backlog of criminal cases partly brought on by Covid-19. He finds time to muse on when a judge might choose to change a sentence already imposed, what to say after dinner, and how the game of golf is strictly for the birds!
