Sol Picciotto is currently (2001) professor of law at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom He says of himself

I was born in 1942 in Aleppo (Halab), Syria, of Jewish parents. My father's family had been established there since the 18th century, part of the well-known Sephardi community. My mother came from Haifa, and was trained as a primary school teacher by the Alliance Francaise Israelite. My father came to Manchester, England, in 1946/7, initially to renew business contacts in the textile trade; but we were forced to leave Syria in 1947 due to inter-communal violence caused by the move to form a state of Israel, and we eventually joined him in Manchester in early 1948. I was educated in the UK, at Manchester Grammar School and Oxford University, where I read law, and went to the University of Chicago for a postgraduate qualification (JD). My first university teaching job was in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), for four years; I was at the University of Warwick for over 20 years, and then moved to Lancaster in 1992. My main field of teaching and research has been in international economic and business law; but I have also published on topics in public international law, social theory of law and state, and aspects of business and commercial law.

Prof. Picciotto has signed this call for an academic boycott of Israel.
