The Cambridge Pro-Bono Project is delighted to invite you to its 10th Anniversary Lecture, to be delivered by Philippe Sands QC and followed by a drinks reception.

Philippe Sands QC is a barrister at Matrix Chambers with a broad practice and extensive experience in international and human rights law. He is also a Professor of Laws and Director of the Project on International Courts and Tribunals at UCL . He has appeared before many international courts and advises on issues such as the immunity of heads of state from the jurisdiction of national and international courts, the violation of fundamental human rights and individual violations of international criminal law.

His work extends far beyond legal practice. The author of 16 books, his written work covers subjects such as the legality of the 2003 Iraq War (‘Lawless World’) and the Bush administration’s use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ post-9/11 (‘Torture Team’). His book ‘East West Street: On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity’ formed the basis for a documentary (‘My Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did’), and he wrote and presented the 2018 Radio 4 documentary ‘The Ratline’, investigating the means by which senior Nazis escaped justice.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Pro Bono Project series.
