Is this a new book by Amal? Sorry for asking, but I don't much follow her work.

The International Bar Association's Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) and Oxford University Press invite you to attend the virtual book launch of ‘The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law’, authored by Barrister and Professor Amal Clooney and Barrister and Professor Philippa Webb.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of international jurisprudence on one of the most litigated rights in the world: the right to a fair trial. It distils international standards — drawing on international and regional treaties, the case law of international courts and tribunals, and decisions of international human rights bodies — and considers their applicability to practical scenarios that arise in criminal trials. According to Sir Howard Morrison QC,a British Judge at the International Criminal Court who wrote the Foreword, the book is 'a reference for every prosecutor or judge who wants to be fair; and for every defence counsel who wants to give their client the best chance of a just outcome in court'.

The webinar will be chaired by Director of the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute, Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, with introductory remarks from Sir Howard Morrison QC. Participants will hear from the book’s co-authors, Amal Clooney and Philippa Webb, alongside a range of legal experts. The webinar will also include an opportunity for participants to ask the speakers questions relating to the book.

I think PAN knows better than I do but this book has been in the works for a few years.  Think we talked about it on COH when Amal first announced and she was going to co-author 
with one of her legal colleagues.

Great find! Maybe lockdown has helped them find the time to finish it!?

Gosh, yes. You're right, Donnamarie. We did - it's somewhere on here. Philippa Webb is

Professor of Public International Law at Kings College London. Think she was at the wedding. As

was another friend who just

helped Amber Heard in her case against her ex-hubby. Recognised her in the papers...

I do remember having read in an article about it. Amal said that they meet regularly to work on the book, and their husbands are joking that it eill never be finished. 

I think you'rs right, PAN. The lockdown might have helped them to finish it.ä
