JUSTICE Scotland’s Annual Human Rights Day Lecture will return on 16 January 2020 at the beautiful Signet Library, kindly hosted by Pinsent Masons.

We are excited to announce that this year’s speaker will be Professor Philippe Sands QC. His lecture will be titled ‘East West Street, human rights and the UK: then and now’.

Philippe Sands QC is Professor of Law at University College London and a practising barrister at Matrix Chambers, of which he was a co-founder in 1999. He is the author of fourteen academic books and contributes to the New York Review of Books, Vanity Fair, the Financial Times and The Guardian. East West Street: On the Origins of Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide won numerous prizes. His next book is The Ratline: Love, Lies and Justice on the Trail of a Nazi Fugitive, to be published in April 2020. He is President of English PEN and a Director of the Hay Festival.

A drinks reception will follow the lecture.
