Learn from experts

For those interested in learning more about international criminal law, strongly recommend obtaining the upcoming 3-volume set on the subject by a prominent scholar M. Cherif Bassiouni. The publication can be ordered from Brill Publications here. He has written extensively on the issues arising in the field and was in fact the driving force behind the establishment of the International Criminal Court. For the last 30 years he has vehemently advocated for the very idea of the ICC, while many were still slumbering and/or rejecting the notion... Many scholars in the field call him the "father of international criminal law." He is currently a Professor of Law at DePaul University (see here).
