Influential, but controversial - elected to the International Court in 1960, Sir Gerald Fitzmaurice served as a judge until 1973. This work comprises a thoughtful essay by Professor Merrills and a selection of Judge Fitzmaurice's opinions. Professor Merrills' essay analyses Judge Fitzmaurice's achievements during his judical tenure and relates them to his earlier work as a legal advisor and scholar. The essay also discusses the final phase of Fitzmaurice's career in which he served as a judge on the European Court of Human Rights and arbitrator. Demonstrating how Fitzmaurice's decisions as a judge stemmed from his distinctive view of law and the legal process, this study particularly interests scholars, practitioners, and students concerned with international adjudication and the nature of international law. This volume is the third in the series entitled "The Judges," which examines the opinions of international judges who have made significant contributions to international law.
