Chapter Summary

An independent and autonomous registry is an essential requirement for an independent judiciary. In many judicial systems the registrar prepares the drafts of decisions. In some legal systems, the registrar is given quasi-judicial powers to settle at least some procedural matters that arise during the process of litigation, and in general the registrar is responsible to the court or tribunal and to the parties for the proper administration of any case. The constituent instrument of the court or tribunal lays down the powers and functions of the registrar and the staff, the registry, including their recruitment and the structure of the registry. The Registrar has a special responsibility in representing the Court before the budgetary authorities of the United Nations. The arrangements regarding privileges and immunities deal with the Registrar and the Court's staff.
