Dr Philippa Webb (20 Essex Street) and Amal Clooney (Doughty Street Chambers) announced in an article published 10 April 2018 by US Vogue that they are co-authoring ‘The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law’. This ambitious text seeks to synthesize a full canon of international court literature to create a practical manual for international lawyers and judges.
Philippa and Amal have co-authored before, last year their article ‘The Right to Insult in International Law‘ was published by Columbia Human Rights Law Review. In this piece they recommended a new international-law standard for “the right to insult” as position of free-speech.
Further details regarding the publishing of The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law will be announced in due course.
