KNOETZL Counsel, Tobias Schaffner, organized Conference at the Faculty of Law of the University of Cambridge

An organization committee headed by KNOETZL Counsel, Tobias Schaffner, invited leading scholars and practitioners from the UK, the U.S., and continental Europe to a conference entitled “Law as a Guide to Justice” and held at the Cambridge Law Faculty on Saturday, 4 March 2017. An illustrious panel including Judge James Crawford, former Whewell Professor of International Law at the University of Cambridge, Onora O’Neill, Baroness O’Neill of Bengarve, a philosopher and member of the House of Lords, Professor Gerald J. Postema of UNC School of Law, and Guglielmo Verdirame, Professor of International Law at King’s College London, discussed the work of Amanda Perreau-Saussine Ezcurra (1971-2012), a Fellow and Lecturer in Law at Queens’ College Cambridge. Perreau-Saussine strived to reconnect legal philosophy with the practice of law, calling on lawyers to understand law as a guide to justice and encouraging legal theorists to take account of the practical wisdom contained in legal practice and case law.
