This chapter focuses on the many accomplishments of Judge Bruno Simma. Simma has a global reputation as an academic, the author of fifteen books (several of which had multiple editions) and more than sixty scholarly articles and of many important reports. His celebrity lies not just in his publications, exceptional though they are, it lies in his remarkable drive and vigour and his very special relations with students. His students at Munich and at Michigan have benefited, since 1973 and 1997 respectively, from this dynamism, coupled with a total lack of pomposity. Simma has a voracious appetite for knowledge. He devours, in many languages, books and articles from various sources on a wide variety of subjects. This is for him not a duty, but a pleasure. He is vastly knowledgeable over the generality of international law. He is also one of the great leaders in the field of human rights.
