Our summer of discontent in the legal aid world was made a bit more bearable by a song that became its anthem, Mighty Sword of Justice by veteran protest singer Tom Robinson.
Obiter is delighted to report that the song is among the tracks on Robinson’s new album, Only the Now, out on 16 October.
Obiter has a white label copy of Only the Now, signed by the artist himself, to give away. To win it, we’d like some lyrics to a new protest song about a legal issue, perhaps to the tune of We Shall Overcome or Blowin in the Wind. Entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 October please.
