Chapter Summary

This chapter makes comments on the overall theme of the ASIL's Annual Meeting, which of course is "The Legalization of International Relations/The Internationalization of Legal Relations." This is an appropriate stage to revert to Lucy Reed's excellent lecture and her references to "mixed" public-private international law institutions, to "great expectations," and to the proliferation of international law courts, tribunals, and commissions. Another aspect of topical importance dealt with in Lucy Reed's lecture is the proliferation of international courts, tribunals, and commissions. Cross-fertilization and proliferation of courts and tribunals can be useful elements in the progressive development of international law, provided they are approached wisely and with caution. It is hoped that practicing and aspiring international lawyers not only found the lecture useful as they undoubtedly have but also that the commentary provided them with some useful food for thought.

Keywords:ASIL; commissions; great expectations; International Dispute Resolution Tribunals; International law; Lucy Reed; proliferation
