Professor Duncan French, Co-Director of the Centre and head of Lincoln Law School, has recently contributed to a new book to celebrate the 90th birthday of His Excellency, Justice Christopher Weeramantry, a former Vice-President of the International Court of Justice.

Judge Weeramantry has had a long and distinguished judicial and academic legal career. Lincoln Law School was fortunate enough to host Judge Weeramantry in 2015 to celebrate the launch of the Lincoln Centre for Environmental Law and Justice.

Professor French noted: “I have met Judge Weeramantry numerous times, and he always speaks articulately and passionately about the role of international law in solving global challenges. It was a real honour to contribute to a book marking his 90th birthday.”

The collection is – One World, One Home, One Law for All : A tribute to Judge Christopher Weeramantry, Stamford Lake Publication
