Shit Lawyer is ‘a manifesto for change’, says Abigail Rolling
A legal defence solicitor is popping her 30 years’ expertise of the justice system right into a comedy present debuting at this yr’s Edinburgh Fringe.
Abigail Rolling, a contract solicitor who certified in 1995, will use her sixty-minute present, Shit Lawyer, to share anecdotes, jokes and authorized conundrums with Fringe-goers all through August.
However the present may also include critical undertones, with the lawyer turned comedienne exposing “in heart wrenching detail” the impression many years of underfunding and neglect has had on each legal attorneys and their purchasers.
“The fact is that justice has become diluted, with bulging prisons, closing courts, and trials that take years to be heard,” Rolling stated. “This is a tragedy for victims of crime and the accused who are found to be innocent, and that could easily be you, or someone you know. Shit Lawyer is a manifesto for change. It’s time to show that the business of criminal law has had very little to do with justice.”
These difficulties in the legal justice system will come as little shock to common readers, with current analysis exhibiting that 81% of junior attorneys felt the once-revered justice system was not a pretty long-term profession.
