History Society Lecture - 6 March

Lecture 2:

Marshall Hall

Master Sally Smith

6 March 2017

Sally Smith will talk about the highs and lows of her research for her recent biography of Sir Edward Marshall Hall and the man she discovered along the way, not to mention his wives, his mistresses, his cases and the romantic world of the late Victorian and Edwardian Bar. For more information please see the Hilary Term Innerview (page 39).

Sir Edward Marshall Hall KC saved more people from the hangman’s noose than any other known barrister. In an age of inadequate defence funding, minimal forensic evidence, a rigid moral code making little allowance for human passion and a reactionary judiciary, his only real weapons were his understanding of human psychology and the power of his personality.

The Lecture will start at 6pm in the Parliament Chamber and will be followed by a drinks reception.
