International law professors bring considerable intelligence and effort to bear in analyzing, writing and speaking on international law issues. But do they have real influence on the world around them? If so, is it positive? If not, how can they change that? What impact can they have through advocacy groups, NGOs, and fieldwork? How can amicus briefs be most effective?
