Sir: Lawyers are apparently angered by the Daily Mail's action because "it makes a mockery of the legal system" and "could lead to injustice" ("Lawyers warn that `Mail' is judge and jury over Lawrence", 15 February).

Surely lawyers are putting the cart before the horse. The legal system has made a mockery of itself and an injustice has already occurred. Were this not so, there would have been neither opportunity nor need for the Mail to act as it has.
