Justice for all (and how to achieve it)
What is a crime against humanity and when should it be investigated? What does ‘human rights’ mean? Is law the new religion and are its high priests, the lawyers, really all that bad? What is the role of the law in sexual behaviour?
Britain in Europe's Sir Geoffrey Nice QC will be exploring these questions with wit, panache and consummate even-handedness by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, in the launch of his book, 'Justice for All and How to Achieve It' which brings together the lectures he delivered as Gresham Professor of Law, 2012-2016.
Drawing on events from around the world and from different periods of history, Sir Geoffrey applies his own experience to moral problems which are as pressing in today’s anxious world as they ever have been, including the UK's relationship with Europe and European human rights.
Sir Geoffrey Nice QC has practised as a barrister since 1971. He led the prosecution of Slobodan Milošević and much of his work since then has been connected to the International Criminal Court or pro bono for victims’ groups.
