Robert H. Jackson Center

The Life of Robert H. Jackson

Robert H. Jackson was a former country lawyer from Chautauqua County who went on to have a significant impact on world and national affairs as Solicitor General, U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Supreme Court Justice and, perhaps most notably, as Chief American Prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Trials.

Radically changing the face of international criminal law, Jackson's legacy has now become a beacon of the ideals he stood for during his lifetime; justice, fairness and human decency. The Robert H. Jackson Center has been established to honor and continue this legacy.
