Join us for this Mishcon Academy: Digital Session with Philippe Sands QC, where he will discuss his latest book The Ratline: Love, Lies and Justice on the Trail of a Nazi Fugitive.
Philippe Sands QC is one of the UK’s most prominent human rights barristers, celebrated for his work in international human rights. He has been involved in many of the most important cases of recent years, including Pinochet, Congo, Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Iraq and Guantanamo, frequently appearing before international courts including the International Criminal Court and the World Court in The Hague. He is a Professor of Law at UCL, and President of English PEN.
Already a BBC Sounds podcast, narrated by Stephen Fry and Laura Linney, The Ratline is part history, part memoir, and part detective story. The Ratline is a true story of spies, cold war, love, bishops, sex and lies. With all the intrigue, emotion and power of his previous novel, East West Street, Philippe Sands returns to the 1940s Nazi empire to uncover the truth behind what happened to leading SS Brigadesführer, Otto von Wächter.
This live session will be chaired by Louis Flannery QC, Partner at Mishcon de Reya, and will be held virtually on Zoom.
