International law regarding the denial of justice has in past centuries attracted the greatest minds of international legal scholarship. Scholars such as Hugo Grotius and Charles De Visscher have discussed the concept. The last book on this subject was published by Alwyn V. Freeman in 1938. Denial of Justice in International Law by Jan Paulsson is hence an important and necessary contribution to the study of international law, since it tries to shed new light on the subject that has been neglected in past decades. This book offers an original and comprehensive approach to one of the most salient concepts of international law. It arose from the Hersch Lauterpacht memorial lectures given by the author at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge, in the autumn of 2003.
