Washington Law Review


I would like this evening to share with you some reflections on the role of the International Court of Justice in an unjust world. You will appreciate that, while I shall try to speak the truth as I see it, I am not able to speak the whole truth; not only because I do not know it, but because of the constraints of my position and the confidentiality of aspects of the work of the Court. In particular, I shall not speak about matters which are sub judice, either in these remarks or in the answers to questions which some of you may wish to ask after them. [Jurisprudential Lecture at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, April 22, 1985.]
