On October 24th, Professor John Q. Barrett lectured and was a panelist at The Center for American and International Law (CAIL) symposium, “The Nuremberg Trials: 70 Years Later, featuring the Storey Nuremberg Collection and personal items from George E. Seay, Jr.,” held in Dallas, Texas.

Professor Barrett is biographer of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, U.S. chief prosecutor at and principal architect of the 1945-1946 Nuremberg trial of the principal Nazi war criminals.

Professor Barrett’s lecture described the Nuremberg trial process and the contributions there of Robert G. Storey (1893-1981). Storey was a leading Dallas lawyer, an American Bar Association president, the Dean of Southern Methodist University Law School, and CAIL’s founder. From June 1945 through January 1946, Robert Storey was a close adviser to Justice Jackson in Washington, London, Paris and Nuremberg. Storey served as U.S. Executive Trial Counsel from the start of the trial through the presentation of the U.S. prosecution case.
