One consequence of the "winding down" of the Vietnam War has been a lessening of interest in the legal issues raised by the conflict. But there are some recent reminders of the relevance of law to this great tragedy. The decision of the Supreme Court in Gillette v. United States dramatically illustrates how the human conscience remains tortured by the war. Within Indochina, two major military operations: the Cambodian incursion, and the movement of troops into Laos, have posed new questions of law and policy for international lawyers.
