THE AUCTION FOR THE SECRET BARRISTER’S BOOK: GOING, GOING AND GONE

The auction for a signed (and personally dedicated) copy of The Secret Barrister’s new book went well beyond expectations.

A REMINDER OF THE AUCTION

THE BOOK

We were auctioning a signed copy of SB’s new book

Details of the book are available here.

“… the Secret Barrister is back to reveal the stupidity, malice and incompetence behind many of the biggest legal stories of recent years. In Fake Law, the Secret Barrister debunks the lies and builds a defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy that is as entertaining as it is vital.”

THE SIGNED COPY

Not only has SB agreed to sign the copy but also to write a short dedication in the words of the winner’s choice. For example,  “To Sam – undoubtedly the best, smartest and most modest lawyer in the universe.” (You get too choose, I should add).

 

THE CAUSE

The money raised will go to Billable Hour.

Billable Hour has extended beyond lawyers, it concentrates upon raising money for children. Particular concerns are now arising from the impact of COVID-19 in many countries throughout the world, as the quote from Sean Jones above shows, the situation is likely to become quite desparate.

THE WINNING BID

The winning bid was £600.  The bid was from Joseph Broadway, Trustee of Law for Life.  Joseph now has the chance to tell SB precisely what he wants the dedication to say.

THANKS TO ALL WHO BID

My thanks to all those who bid.  I hope that the unsigned version will be nearly as good as a real life signed copy. The money goes to an undoubtedly good cause.
