The Honourable Mr Justice Cooke is a former Harlequins rugby player and now a High Court Judge. He has judged many high-profile cases, including the Pakistani match-fixing trial in which he condemned their behaviour as “not cricket”. He is vice-chairman of the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship. Here he is interviewed, and then speaks on: “Does faith fly in the face of the evidence?”
