Thinking Law, Talking Law, Doing Law: How Lawyers Craft(ed) the International Order

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Crafting the International Order

Marcus M. Payk

Kim Christian Priemel

Oxford University Press

Lawyers make politics, and international lawyers make international politics. Yet despite a few prominent judges or academic stars, the roles which jurists play as practitioners of international politics are often underappreciated or their juristic personas take a backseat behind those of the politician and the diplomat. In contrast, this volume sheds light on how lawyers in the past 300 years have made sense of, engaged in, and shaped international politics. The introduction sets out the main themes and aims of this endeavour, exploring how historiography, international law, and legal studies have dealt with jurists and lawyers so far; conceptualizing the practices and practitioners of international politics; and presenting an overview of the case studies assembled in the volume.

Keywords:   international law, international lawyers, historiography of international law, case studies, biographical approaches
