5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sample of essential cases, 17 May 2011
This review is from: International Criminal Law: Cases and Commentary (Paperback)
This casebook is a true gift to students of International Criminal Law. The authors skillfully manage to extract the essential paragraphs of the cases, as well as provide context through well-written, but very short, introductions and comments. Due to the fact that International Criminal Law cases aren't always easily accessible, due to the length of the judgments, language or lacking publication, this book is a gem.

If you are looking for mere summaries this book is not for you. However, this books approach of providing extracts of the original texts is much more useful for the critical law student.

There are, as would be expected, a couple of issues that could have been dealt with more in depth. I especially missed a chapter analyzing the subjective element ("mens rea") in more detail, since it is such a core issue. Considering the increased focus on the human rights of the defendant, I also felt that the book could benefit from a chapter on the human rights of the defendant during trial.
