A book colloquium featuring Stuart H Newberger, an international lawyer who represented victims of the terrorist plot hatched by Colonel Gaddafi that brought down French Airlines Flight 772. His latest book The Forgotten Flight: Terrorism, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice tells the story of how he fought for justice for seven of the 170 people killed in one of the deadliest acts of terrorism in history.

This real-life legal thriller combines the international intrigue of le Carré with the courtroom drama of John Grisham, and asks how we can bring leaders of sovereign nations to account for their crimes.

For the first time, Stuart Newberger reveals how French investigators cracked the case and takes us inside the courtroom to witness the litigation against the Libyan state that followed. In the age of globalization, The Forgotten Flight provides a fascinating insight into the pursuit of justice across international borders.

The author will introduce his book, followed by comments by three commentators:

Dan Sarooshi, Prof of International Law, Oxford

Dr Rebecca Mooney, Associate Fellow, Oxford Law Faculty and Member of Wolfson College

Kaveh Moussavi, human rights lawyer and Member of Wolfson College

Stuart H. Newberger is a senior partner at international law firm Crowell & Moring. His practice handles complex international disputes, many involving the actions of governments. He lives in McLean, Virginia.

Praise for The Forgotten Flight

Gripping, shocking, forensic: a true legal thriller that captured me entirely.

Philippe Sands, author of East West Street

In the war against terrorism, lawyers can make a difference. A must read for all those interested in how the rule of law can be an important weapon in the ongoing struggle.

Kenneth Feinberg, former Special Master of the Federal September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
