Michael Mansfield - Author


Michael Mansfield QC was born in 1941 and educated at Highgate School and Keele University. Called to the Bar in 1967, he established Tooks Chambers, in 1984 and became Queen’s Counsel in 1989. He has represented defendants in criminal trials, appeals, inquests and inquiries in some of the most controversial legal cases the country has seen, particularly where issues of Civil Liberty have arisen; he is President and Patron of numerous organisations including the Haldane, Amicus and Viva!, Professor and Honorary Fellow of many universities as well as being a regular contributor to public debates on human rights issues.

Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer, published by Bloomsbury in September 2009, also unveils with honesty and wit a man who has put as much passion and energy into his life as his work, one of the great personalities of our time.
