This collection of essays honours Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, the International Tribunal's second President and the presiding judge in the first international war crimes trial in modern times. Written by judges, legal advisers and practitioners, it is a comprehensive overview of the procedural and evidentiary aspects of the International Tribunal's work. These essays should be of assistance to all those who are following the work and development of the International Tribunal, particularly practitioners, academics, and students. This collection thus contributes to the literature on the International Tribunal and is a tribute to President McDonald and her work.
