Lawyers who devote substantial time to promoting international human rights are our focus this week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer. Joining my cohost J. Craig Williams and me to discuss their work in this field are:

  • Jerome J. Shestack, the former ABA president (1997-98)who is now of counsel to Wolf, Block, Schorr & Solis-Cohen in Philadelphia. Shestack’s distinguished career includes having been U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights under President Jimmy Carter, president of the International League for Human Rights, founder of the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights (now Human Rights First) and general counsel to Amnesty International in the United States.
