In the UK, McKenzie Friends were born in 1970, out of the need to help pro bono as ‘litigation friend’, when a ‘Litigant in Person’ could not afford to pay a lawyer.
Since then, they emerged mainly from victims of white collar crimes who were learning by doing – generally after bad experiences with the legal profession, e.g.:
- Moral Propositions
- Bent Lawyers and Cops
- Judges Behaving Badly
- Corrupt Judges Exposed
- Oppose Predatory Guardians [Court of ‘Protection’ – part of Family Courts]
And a book as well as mainstream media articles:
- The Most Corrupt British Judges
- Scandal of the judges who shame justice
- Serious corruption has happened in our justice system.
