Judge Bo Vesterdorf retires this fall after serving as Judge on the Court of First Instance (“CFI”) since its inauguration on September 25, 1989, acting as its President for three successive terms since 1998. It is accordingly highly appropriate that the editors of the Fordham International Law Journal (“ILJ”) should dedicate this annual issue devoted to European Union (“EU”) law to Judge Vesterdorf as an eminent jurist who has significantly contributed to the development of the CFI's jurisprudence, and also provided able pragmatic leadership as its presiding judge. The ILJ can be considered to act on behalf of the entire Fordham Law School community, which has greatly benefited from Judge Vesterdorf’s visits in past years.
