In this Article, James Bacchus describes his experiences as a "faceless foreign judge" of the World Trade Organization. In this capacity, Bacchus and his six colleagues on the WTO Appellate Body hear appeals in international trade disputes among the 144 member countries and other customs territories that are Members of the WTO. Bound by the WTO Rules of Conduct, he cannot comment on cases or the specific deliberation process, but rather comments on the processes and role of the Appellate Body relative to the WTO.
