Read biography
Length: 20 minutes
I expected to be a part of a great adventure, a historic process in which new concepts of law, the application of international law, were being developed in a systematic way. And I think I had a bit of an idealistic notion of international law and the role it would play in terms of affecting the norms for war crimes.

Judge Patricia Wald spent two decades in the U.S. Court of Appeals, but for the last two years of her career (1999-2001) moved to The Hague to be a member of the ICTYs Trial and Appeals Chambers. In an interview just before leaving the Tribunal, in November 2001, Judge Wald speaks about her experiences and impressions from the trials for crimes in Srebrenica, the Omarska camp, and the Lava Valley.
