Noyce notes that it was a “radical legal rights magazine, with very good coverage of police corruption. Also details of court procedure and legal representation. No.6 was printed by SW Litho (the printing arm of the Socialist Worker Party, formerly the International Socialists) who pulped the print run without informing Up Against The Law – resulting in legal action” Noyce, The Directory of British Alternative Periodicals 1965-1974, 1161.
