Although my work is largely with international lawyers, I often meet lawyers from many walks of life and am struck by how many lawyers seem to doubt the very existence of international law. Layman though I am, I want to lay that misconception to rest. Law is the warp and woof of the fabric that binds us together. Law makes it possible for one hundred and fifty-four nations to deal cooperatively and peacefully with each other over a wide range of issues.
