This chapter explores the contribution Lord Bingham has made to the jurisprudence of international law. Lord Bingham has been a leader in recognizing the role of international law in domestic law and in referring to and employing international legal materials. He has provided judgments on sovereign immunity, the extraterritorial application of national human rights legislation, treaty interpretation, the validity of derogations from international obligations, and the admission of evidence obtained by torture. These topics are briefly examined to gain some insight into the unique influence he has had on the substance of international law that is wider than within the United Kingdom alone.

Keywords:   jurisprudence, international law, sovereign immunity, treaty interpretation, admission of evidence, torture
