Chapter Summary

Most international lawyers are familiar with at least one embarrassing conversation with their national law colleagues. This is one in which the name of a doyen or doyenne of international law is dropped, and is met with a resounding 'Who?' There are three ways of avoiding this blush-inducing moment. The first is to not shamelessly drop the names of the great and good of international law in conversation. The second is to only do so with international lawyers. The third, and best, way of averting such an academic faux pas is to mention Colin Warbrick. This chapter discusses the normative status of the decisions of international criminal tribunals in the international legal order, and in the UK. The common law is not the only way in which the jurisprudence of international tribunals may have a role in the UK legal order.
