Rosemary Riddell: To be fair

In this episode of Books & Beyond Alison chats with author Rosemary Riddell about her book To be fair: confessions of a district court judge. Rosemary says that, in writing the book “I wanted people to see that judges are not high and mighty or unreachable. We are just ordinary people doing a rather demanding and difficult job, and it is a job that keeps our feet on the ground.” Listen and find out what a day on the bench in our court system looks like. Our verdict on Rosemary’s book? Fabulous.
