Can anyone tell me if there are any stories set in a british court room. I would love to find one as my husband's searched for years!

Agatha Christie write a short story called Witness for the Prosecution.
It is available as a Kindle e-book, but also in a book of short stories called Witbness for the Prosecution and other Stories.

Some of P D James books include courtroom scenes e.g. A Certain Justice.
Dorothy L Sayers - Strong Poison
Simon Tolkien - The Inheritance; also Final Witness
P Ackroyd
Kate Wilhelm

If you go onto Google Search and type in british courtroom fiction, there are several guides available to courtroom fiction.

LEP. How could I forget Rumpole!!
IME, Rumpole is one of the most accurtae books about the workings of the English courts, although he twists the lion's tail more than many dare.

A Game of Proof: 1 (The Trials of Sarah Newby)

This is a brilliant book. It's book 1 in a series of 3 I'm in the middle of reading it and can't put it down.

Love Rumpole.
Witness For The Prosecution was also made into a very good film.
