Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 19 September 6, 1938


The fact that the law, as Anatole France reminded us, "with a majestic impartiality forbids the rich and the poor alike to starve to death, or to sleep under bridges," does not ensure either equality or justice before the law. "Justice in England," by "A Barrister." the latest Left Book Club choice, containing a most comprehensive review of the English legal system, deals briefly but yet exhaustively, with many of the discrepancies of that system.

Members of the Bar in this country can derive some small comfort from the fact that parts of our New Zealand system have progressed beyond the state where the author's criticisms are applicable.
