Philippe Sands (2016 Event)

There is no lawyer quite like Philippe Sands QC. Outspoken on a range of human rights issues, from the illegality of the Iraq war to torture in the Bush administration, the Professor of Law at University College London is also a highly respected barrister who has been involved in the major human rights cases of recent times from Rwanda, Yugoslavia and Guantánamo. In this event, recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Sands explores the deep personal inspirations that drive him professionally to challenge governments and champion just causes.
