Recommendations on International Law and Official Commentary Thereon of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress Held in Washington: December 27, 1915 January 8, 1916 (Classic Reprint) by James Brown Scott (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Recommendations on International Law and Official Commentary Thereon of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress Held in Washington: December 27, 1915 January 8, 1916 The present little volume contains recommendations of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress relating to international law, as they appear in the Final Act of the Congress, and they are accompanied by that part of the official report, prepared by the undersigned, explaining, interpreting, and justifying them, if perchance they need justification. The last three resolutions can t in strictness be said to relate to international law, and yet, as they are law and deal with legal matters, they have been retained. The introduction to this portion of the official report states that the articles are based upon the resolutions adopted by the Conference of American Teachers of International Law, held at Washington, April 23-25, 1914, upon the invitation of the American Society of International Law, and it has been thought well to include these resolutions in the little volume in order that the relation between them may be ted. The Conference of Teachers directed that Mr. Roots article on the need of popular understanding of international law, contributed to the first number of the American Journal of International Law, which appeared in 1907, and his address on opening the Conference as its president, should be published with the resolutions. They are therefore prefixed to them and, together with the resolutions of the Conference, form the introduction to the recommendations of the Pan American Scientific Congress. The preface to the proceedings of the Conference of American Teachers of International Law states the aims and purposes of its promoters to be To consider what measures, if any, could properly be taken to arouse a greater interest in international law where taught in American institutions of learning; to secure its introduction in American institutions of learning where it is t taught; to call attention to its importance to lawyers in the practice of their profession; and to suggest the advisability of a kwledge of its principles for admission to the bar; and to show, finally, the necessity of an understanding of the subject by the public at large, which in a democracy such as ours determines in the ultimate resort the foreign policy of the United States.
