Lawyers Without Rights

Times Online reports on a London exhibition commemorating the Jewish lawyers of Nazi Germany.

Representatives of the Law Society and Bar Council also gathered for the event at Temple Church, where the exhibition "Lawyers Without Rights" will be on display until July 31.

In the keynote address, Mr Justice Beatson spoke movingly about the persecution suffered by German Jewish lawyers, which led to an outright ban on practicing law in 1938.

Many of these later perished in the Holocaust but Mr Justice Beatson - co-author of a book on German Jewish émigré lawyers - also spoke of the many accomplishments of those who survived.
