Sir Konrad Schiemann in conversation with Sir Geoffrey Nice
Wednesday 7th February 2024
18:30 at Waterstones, Canterbury - Rose Lane
Konrad Schiemann will be discussing his book, A Dual Perspective: The German in an English Judge, with Geoffrey Nice.
Schiemann, who left Nazi Germany as a child , went on to become an Appeal Court and European Court of Justice judge. His inspiring autobiography reveals his extraordinary career and family: his mother was connected to a plot to assassinate Hitler and a great-grandfather was honoured by Israel for helping Jews to escape wartime Germany.
He has forged his career around his desire for a peaceful Europe, something he still hopes for.
Geoffrey Nice was the lead prosecutor of Slobodan Milosevich at the European Court of Human Rights,and more recently he chaired the Uyghur Tribunal into China’s persecution of that group. China has consequently sanctioned him from entering the country.
During his tenure as Gresham Professor of Law (2012–2016), Geoffrey Nice tackled subjects as diverse as genocide, the law’s role in sexual conduct, and whether lawyers really are scoundrels. The book based on his lectures, Justice for All, and How to Achieve it , will be on sale at this event.
