* Legal Affairs Officer, Appellate Body Secretariat, World Trade Organization, Geneva; Master of Public Administration (Harvard), Assessor juris (Berlin), First Legal State Examination (Passau). I wish to express my particular gratitude to Professor Joseph H.H. Weiler for making my two years at Harvard a unique experience of reflection, understanding and learning, and for supervising this work. I am indebted to Simon Lester, Jochem Wiers, Jillyanne Redpath and Joost Pauwelyn for their helpful comments on a previous draft. This article expresses only my personal views; it was written before my arrival at the Appellate Body Secretariat.
