Michael Kerr (lawyer)

Sir Michael Robert Emanuel Kerr, PC (1 March 1921 – 14 April 2002) was a German-born British jurist, lawyer and author. He was the son of German drama critic Alfred Kerr and brother of author Judith Kerr. Born in Charlottenburg, Germany, Kerr and his family were forced to leave their homeland at the end of the Weimar Republic by the emergence of the Nazi party. After 1933, the Kerr family lived in Switzerland, France and finally Great Britain, as noted in his sister's writing.
