Sydney Law School Distinguished Speakers Program: Geoffrey Robertson QC

Leading UK human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson QC will deliver a lecture entitled 'Humanitarian intervention and international law' as part of the Sydney Law School Distinguished Speakers Program on Tuesday 19 April.

Robertson has argued many landmark cases in media, constitutional and criminal law in Europe and across the world. Among numerable ground-breaking cases, he is currently serving as counsel to Julian Assange on the Wikileaks case, and has previously represented Tasmanian aborigines in the novel action which stopped the Natural History Museum from experimenting on the remains of their ancestors; defended the Chief Justice of Trinidad at impeachment proceedings; argued the Court of Appeal case which first defined 'terrorism' for the purpose of British law; argued for the right of the public to see royal wills; and represented a trust for the education of poor children in litigation in Anguilla over a billion dollar bequest.
