About Nina Stanger
Nina Stanger was a trailblazing civil liberties barrister and author who lived in London in the 1960s and 70s. She achieved tabloid fame for defending the downtrodden and social pariahs: political protestors, squatters, and terrorists, in cases such as the Miss World bombing and the Angry Brigade trial. She was known for her beauty, intelligence, and bohemian, flamboyant style. In 1987 she moved to Florence, Italy, where she surrounded herself in art history and comparative legal studies, focusing on preserving the institution of trial by jury. Nina tragically died in 1999 of a pulmonary embolism, but not before completing her first novel, ‘Falcon’.
