My topic today is the political element in international law, and its significance, both to law, and to legal education. I didn't suppose, when the theme was chosen for me, long ago, that I should be talking in the midst of an international crisis entirely dominated by the politics of international law, or the law of international politics. My effort, however, will be to map the background of the crisis, not to offer simple and comforting solutions for our difficulties in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
