Geoffrey Lawrence, 3rd Baron Trevethin and 1st Baron Oaksey, DSO, TD, KC (2 December 1880 - 28 August 1971) was the main British Judge during the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, and President of the Judicial group.

Geoffrey Lawrence in The Man With the Iron HeartEdit

Geoffrey Lawrence (1880-1945?) was in the Palace of Justice the day that the German Freedom Front destroyed it with a truck bomb. In those confused hours after the attack, American journalist William Shirer reported that the alternate British judge, Norman Birkett, was among both the killed and the wounded.[1] Presumably, Lawrence should have taken Birkett's place on one of those lists.
