Current Challenges Facing the United Nations Legal Office
Keynote address by Patricia O'Brien, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs: "Current Challenges Facing the United Nations Legal Office."This lecture was delivered at the seventh Brandeis Institute for International Judges (BIIJ), held from 25 to 30 July 2010 at the Salzburg Global Seminar in Salzburg, Austria. The Institute was attended by sixteen judges from thirteen international courts and tribunals, including the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and the European Court of Human Rights, as well as more specialized institutions such as the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.Its theme this year, "Toward an International Rule of Law," encompassed topics including the fairness of international law, the accessibility of international courts and tribunals, and the impact of diversity on the establishment of an international rule of law. The Institute also continued a tradition of examining ethical issues faced by members of the international judiciary.The Salzburg Global Seminar is grateful to Justice Richard Goldstone, a member of its Board of Directors, for bringing this distinguished gathering to its historic headquarters, Schloss Leopoldskron in the city of Salzburg.moreless
