Keynote speaker Wim Anker
Wim Anker has been one of the best-known criminal lawyers in the Netherlands for more than 40 years. Together with his brother Hans, they assisted many defendants, mostly pro bono. These defendants represent a cross-section of our society. Wim: “It can happen to anyone, make no mistake!”
As a retired man in the true sense of the word, Wim now lectures on the ethical boundaries and integrity of the criminal lawyer’s profession and holds up a mirror to other professionals in his reflections, which are punctuated with tears and smiles.
