The London Charter was drafted August 8, 1945 and instated The International Military Tribunal to convict representative leaders of the Nazi regime for various crimes committed during World War II. Although the trial is generally seen as a step forward in international relations, it actually serves as an example of U.S. reservations to subject itself to international scrutiny. This essay focuses on the development of the London Charter with an emphasis on Robert H. Jackson and the key role that he played in both the drafting of the charter, as well as throughout the trials.
