Professor Judith Gardam's distinguished record of scholarship speaks for itself. What is less well known is Judith's record as an inspiring teacher and colleague. To those of us who were fortunate to be her students, Judith conveyed not only her enthusiasm for, and commitment to, international law, but also her intellectual discipline. No student of Judith's could forget her admonitions on the importance to scholars of international law of striving to truly understand its sources. As a colleague, I found supervising doctoral candidates with Judith a pleasure because of her interest in their projects and her dedication to mentoring the next generation of scholars. The humanity that pervades Judith's scholarship and teaching is all the more powerful because of the rigorous and disciplined approach to the law which is her hallmark.
