Our first issue ‘uncovering legal absurdities’ explores why it is that courthouses are intent on keeping us lot, the public/rabble/dirty masses, out. From awkward sight lines in the public galleries to censorious stares from Court Ushers, lack of decent parking to airy-fairy legal jargon; blatantly, we are not wanted in our courthouses. If that isn’t enough reason to go to your local and make a nuisance of yourself for a day or two, I don’t know what is. This issue also involves a bloke losing his fingers to a chainsaw, another bloke losing his life to Lollardy and an old Lady giving a talk under the tallest cathedral spire in England. 

Postage is currently UK only, however please do drop us an email if you’re not UK based and interested. 

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR


“Nicked journal celebrates the absurdity of the trial by looking at the sheer ridiculousness of the unobserved, and seemingly unremarkable, cases which pass through our courts every day. The aim is simple, to encourage readers to take to the public gallery in their masses. To fidget, to scoff, and to smile wryly from the sidelines as lawyers and judges muddle through contradictory evidence, unhelpful witnesses, and ludicrous arguments in an attempt to find the truth and the law. The honest and conversational commentary of nicked journal turns the mundane into a monumental farce to engage and inspire a new generation who are actually interested in the law, that thing that we live our lives by. Or don't...” 

NOTE FROM OUR HATERS
