Bywire tested its new channel in July and has been impressed with the steady audience growth.

“The law is vital to society, but relatively few people really understand how it works. This is more important now than ever before with certain figures in authority seeking to undermine public faith in the judiciary, and in how it works,” adds O’Sullivan. “How the courts function and the access we get to justice hangs in the balance with a government culling legal aid, overly stretched and out of its depth across multiple fronts, in desperate need of an identity. Testing the separation of the executive and the judiciary should not fill this void. At Bywire, we’re committed to reporting as best we can on everything from the legal sector, and we hope to offer a unique take.”

Within the Law will democratise information offering an accessible platform where people can become informed, helping them define their own opinions and conclusions about the key legal issues and cases of the day based on factual reporting.
