Nuremberg’s complicated lessons of law and justice, 70 years later - Opinion - Stripes
Custom was supposed to reflect the universal practice of civilized nations. All Jackson had to say in response was that if Germany had failed to understand that custom, so much the worse for it. Realizing the difficulty of his position, Jackson made a second, distinct argument one of remarkable brilliance, as well as remarkable honesty. He told the tribunal that perhaps it was true that the Nazis hadnt committed a crime under international laws that existed before the war, and were therefore now being tried under a brand-new law. Even if the law was new, Jackson insisted, I still do not shrink from demanding its strict application by the tribunal. Jackson had a clear reason for why the tribunal should apply law to the Nazis, even if that law was being invented for the occasion: It was necessary to try the Nazis to advance the rule of law itself. Innocent people had died fighting the Nazis, and so it followed, Jackson claimed, that the law itself could be advanced by executing guilty ones such as the Nazis. I cannot subscribe to the perverted reasoning, he said, that progress in the law may never be made at the price of morally guilty lives. All this, Jackson insisted, was a matter of simple logic: The common sense of mankind demands the law shall not stop with the punishment of petty crimes by little people. Jackson was saying that, in the wake of World War II, law itself as a tool of civilization was at stake. If the law could not be used to try http://www.somepandora.com/2015/11/28/a-quick-a-to-z-on-key-criteria-in-paralegal/ to punish Nazis, it was essentially useless. Therefore, law must be used regardless of the technicalities.
