The Editors of the Fordham International Law Journal, friends, and colleagues remember Professor Robert Goebel.
The Editors of the Fordham International Law Journal are deeply saddened by the loss of former Secretary-General and ILJ contributor Kofi Annan. In 1997, he published his opening remarks to the International Bar Association titled, "Advocating for an International Criminal Court," in Volume 21, Issue 2 of the Journal. His desire for global justice still rings true to this day.
