Lecture summary: From 1995, when he arrived in Cambridge, to 2014, when he left, Roger O'Keefe witnessed first hand the evolution and expansion of the small, somewhat homespun Research Centre for International Law into the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, one of the world's leading centres for the research, teaching, and discussion of public international law. He was also privileged to work alongside two of the figures whose names will forever be associated with the Centre, its founder Professor Sir Elihu Lauterpacht and its long-time director Professor James Crawford. The passing of both, in 2017 and 2021 respectively, marks the end of an era in the Centre's history, an era on which Professor O'Keefe will share his personal recollections and reflections.

Roger O’Keefe is Professor of International Law at Bocconi University, Milan and Honorary Professor at the Faculty of Laws, University College London, where from 2014 to 2018 he was Professor of Public International Law. From 2000 to 2014 he lectured in the Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge, was a Fellow of Magdalene College, and was a Fellow and, from 2003, Deputy Director of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. He is joint General Editor of the Oxford University Press series Oxford Monographs in International Law.
