Abstract

A race apart?


The author takes a rather more measured view of the role played by translators in international courts and tribunals than Norman Birkett, who once described them as “a race apart – touchy, vain, unaccountable, full of vagaries, puffed up with self-importance of the most explosive kind, inexpressibly egotistical, and, as a rule, violent opponents of soap and sunlight”. Article by Patricia Wheeler (United Nations legal committees). Published in Amicus Curiae - Journal of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and its Society for Advanced Legal Studies. The Journal is produced by the Society for Advanced Legal Studies at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London.
