The ‘Knowing our Rights‘ research project and the Brunel Law Society are delighted to invite you to a launch of Sir Geoffrey Nice QC’s new book:
Justice for All and How to Achieve It:
Citizens, lawyers and the law in the age of human rights.
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? These and many other crucial questions are explored with wit, panache and consummate even-handedness by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, in this book, 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.
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.
