Sir Geoffrey Nice is a British barrister and activist. He attended St Dunstan’s College, Catford, and Keble College, Oxford. He was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1990. Sir Geoffrey was a deputy prosecutor at Slobodan Milosevic’s trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague. He initiated the prosecution’s initial case of linking atrocities committed in the former Yugoslavia to Milosevic and led all prosecution teams from 2001 until the end of the trial in 2006. He also prosecuted several other cases at the ICTY since 1998 when he was recruited to the Tribunal by Justice Louise Arbour (later UN High Commissioner for Human Rights). In the UK, Sir Geoffrey’s practice also deals with human rights, public law and personal injury. He was created a Knight Bachelor in 2007.
