New Exhibit: Judges, Judging and Judicial Lawmaking in International Law

November 10, 2014

A new exhibit showcasing a selection of representative works on international judicial lawmaking in the law library foreign and international law collection is now on display on L1 of the law library.

The selections of works highlight the debates on judicial opinions as a source of the corpus of international law, recurring discourse on the legitimacy of international courts and tribunals as lawmakers, the impact of judges’ exercise of public authority through lawmaking on democratic governance, and related issues of proliferation and fragmentation.
