Thank you, Mr. Dean, for that generous introduction.
And thank you, Benedict, and thank you, David, for inviting
me to speak at this splendid event. I know there is nothing
more deadly than an academic lecture delivered over cocktails
and canapes, so I will try to keep it brief. But Tom, fair warning:
I also plan to keep it light, so we don't get too maudlin
while the weekend is so young!
Let me start by saying that this cocktail hour is not the
time to review Tom Franck's astonishing achievements in international
law. That is what this weekend's symposium is for,
and besides, you have his biography in this program. If you
have read it, you know that Tom's curriculum vitae would
make most World Courtjudges drool and most young scholars
