It examines how, in the exercise of their functions as judges or due to the impact of their scholarly work on seminal international judicial decisions – in particular the Nuremberg judgment of the International Military Tribunal, the Tadi_ case before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, and the Lawless v United Kingdom decision of the European Court of Human Rights – Judges Lauterpacht, Cassin and Cassese made important contributions to the development of international law towards a system progressively centred on the individual.
