An award-winning author and international lawyer will deliver the Bolton Lecture at this year’s Cashel Arts festival on 21 September.
His talk will centre around the establishment of international law and human rights through the prism of the Nuremberg trials.
Crimes against humanity
Philippe Sands has spent many years researching the origins of genocide and crimes against humanity.
His talk at the festival will be based on his book East West Street – on the origins of genocide and crimes against humanity, which draws on events which happened during the Second World War.
Thriller writer John Le Carré described the book as “a monumental achievement: profoundly personal, told with love, anger and great precision.”
Sands’ lecture will be part historical detective story, part family history and part legal thriller.
Lawyers are advised that one hour of general CPD will be available for attendance.
