Geoffrey Robertson
Australia Crest

Barrister, defamation expert, TV front man, human rights campaigner and author.

A Sydney boy, growing up in Lane Cove, Robertson became a Rhodes Scholar with cigar smoking Bill Clinton. Geoffrey and some other Rhodes Scholars threatened to return their scholarships because South Africa and the then Rhodesia had never had a black Rhodes Scholar. Then they realised there had not been and never would be a female Rhodes Scholar.

He has acted for novelist Salman Rushdie in the more dangerous, for Rushdie, past and is currently working on the extradition case of Chilean General Pinochet, a man who's techniques included throwing people out of helicopters, without parachutes!
