Chapter Summary

The atmosphere of Nuremberg speaks to issues in our own time, and beyond the realm of international humanitarian law. It was striking that during his recent confirmation hearings before the US Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2005, John Roberts, now the Chief Justice of the United States, expressed his esteem for Justice Robert Jackson, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, when he was called upon to discuss those figures in the judicial history of the United States who had influenced his own judicial thinking. And indeed Jackson, beyond what he did in Nuremberg, stands out as a judge whose relentless commitment to the principles of the law speaks to the times in which we are living.
