Book Description:

This elaboration of the Hersch Lauterpacht Memorial Lectures delivered in November 1990, deals with a number of controversial issues in the operation of the contemporary system of international justice. In a wideranging discussion, the author: - examines critically the expansion in the number of international tribunals; - questions that jurisdiction may not be exercised without consent; - assesses access to international tribunals; - reviews the desirability of developing a system of appeals within the international judicial system; - examines the significance of the growing recourse to Chambers of the International Court of Justice; - and concludes with a searching analysis of the role of equity in international litigation and, in particular, the need for changes in traditional procedures to take account of the extended discretion of the judiciary.

Review:

"[This book] is 'must' reading for practicing and academic international lawyers...a fine small volume of provocative thoughts and intriguing suggestions that every serious international law practitioner should consider carefully." Keith Highet, The American Journal of International Law
