Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law. Created in 1971, the Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law is the pre-eminent forum for academic discussion on global legal issues, theories and developments. From its inception in 1971 as a student initiative supported by former U.S. Secretary of State and UGA Law Professor Dean Rusk, the International Journal features work by legal scholars and practitioners as well as student notes written by International Journal members. With a staff composed entirely of second- and third- year law students, the International Journal publishes three times each year. The International Journal serves as a valuable research tool for practicing lawyers and students of the law. It also provides opportunities for International Journal members to develop their own editing and writing skills. This issue presents results from the Colloquium: The Role of the United Nations in the Maintenance of Peace Before and After the Year Two Thousand. Includes work by Louis Bruno Sohn (1 March 1914 - 7 June 2006) who was born in Lemberg, in what was then Austria-Hungary, later Poland and now Ukraine. He earned his first law degree at John Casimir University in Lwow in 1939, leaving for the United States to take up a Harvard University research fellowship two weeks before Nazi Germany invaded Poland. He was a longtime scholar of international law and advocate of international institutions. As a protégé of Manley O. Hudson, he participated in the San Francisco Conference that established the United Nations, working on the statute of the International Court of Justice. Sohn earned his LL.M. and S.J.D. degrees from Harvard Law School. He was appointed an assistant professor there in 1951, succeeding Hudson to the Bemis Chair in 1961. Sohn followed his friend Dean Rusk to the University of Georgia School of Law, where he held the Woodruff Chair in International Law until 1991. Sohn served as counselor to the Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State in 1970 and 1971. He was the U.S. delegate to the Law of the Sea Convention from 1974 to 1982. In 1958, Sohn was a co-author, with Grenville Clark, of World Peace Through World Law (Harvard University Press), which examined proposals to transform the United Nations into a world government. The book called for complete disarmament and the use of world judicial tribunals to solve international disputes. The plan also proposed a permanent world police force to enforce a prohibition on the use of force by states. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by numerous people from 1959 to 1964. Also includes work by Judge Keith Siskin attended the University of Georgia School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctorate degree, Cum Laude. While attending law school, Siskin served as Editor-In-Chief of the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law. Judge Siskin is the author of Does International Law Reflect International Opinion? French Nuclear Testing in the Twentieth Century, 26 Ga. J. Int'l & Comp. L. 187 (1996).
