The legend of St Yves - a kind of French Robin Hood - is not widely known in Britain, even though he is sometimes described as the patron saint of Lawyers. This book tells the story of St Yves and argues that even for those people who have heard of him much has been lost in translation.
WATERSIDE PRESS publishes works of interest across the legal system where many of its titles have become staples for practitioners, tutors and librarians. Waterside authors come from a wide range of backgrounds and include for example lawyers, judges, campaigners, ex-prisoners, historians, biographers, criminologists and other experts. We also publish works on aspects of social history and seek to blend readability with excellence, diversity, innovation and integrity. In 2010, Waterside Press published Sir William Garrow: His Life Times and Fight for Justice the contents of which were mirrored in the award-winning BBC TV series 'Garrows Law', leading to other projects touching on popular culture or with links to the media.
