Text no. 1: The variety of topics covered & the quality of the contributors make these two volumes a necessary part of any law library in the world. The essays are designed to overlap in the well-tested & established fields & branches of law dealing with contemporary issues which lawyers, diplomats, political scientists, politicians & research scholars are familiar with. The essays fully demonstrate the depth of knowledge of the eminent professors & specialists who have written them. The two volumes of essays are divided into seven parts. Volume One, entitled Contemporary International Law & Human Rights , focuses essentially on subjects relating to International Law & is divided into three sections. Part one of the first volume encompasses Topics in International Law such as Some New Thoughts on the Codification of International Law by his Excellency Judge Roberto Ago; Evidence in the Procedure of the International Court of Justice: The Role of the Court by His Excellency Judge Manfred Lachs; The Validity of International Law: an Empirical Experiment by Professor Georg Schwarzenberger, with a particularly engaging & incisive Introduction to the two volumes of Essays by Professor Ian Brownlie, Q.C. Human rights subjects still hold pride of place in the thinking of many legal experts & scholars & that is clearly reflected here. The title of the second volume is African Law & Comparative Public Law. Part Five of the essays contains topics of interest in the African Legal system which has its roots in the British Common Law System. Constitutional Law is broadly covered in part six which forms a section of its own in Volume Two.

Part five of the essays contains topics of interest in African Legal system which took its roots from the British Common Law System. Constitutional Law is bloadly covered in part six which forms a section of its own in volume two. Quite apart from the variety of topics covered in this festschrift, the quality of the contributors to it, makes the whole exercise a necessary part of an important collection of any law library in the world. The framework of the essays suggest that they are designed to overlap in the well-tested & established field of law & those branches of law dealing with contemporary issues which lawyers, diplomats, political scientists, politicians & research scholars are familiar with. The richness of the festschrift is matched only by the mutually reinforcing manner in which the presentation was made.
