Abstract

Ever since the signing of the agreement in London on 8 August 1945 by representatives of the British, French,
American and Russian Governments ('London agreement'), followed by the presentation to the International
Military Tribunal sitting at Berlin on 18 October 1945 of the indictment against twenty four of the most
prominent German military and political leaders, and the proceedings at Nuremberg which culminated in the
judgement delivered on 30 September and 1 October 1946, there has been widespread and persistent controversy
among lawyers, academics, scholars, historians and others, who have found ''Nuremberg Law" a fascinating
research subject. The principal issue was, and remains, whether or not the trials conducted pursuant to the
Charter annexed to the London Agreement had a sound jurisdictional basis.
For the most part the views publicly expressed by writers on the issue have been firm and diametrically opposed.
