Chapter Summary

The Statute of the Permanent Court as an instrument was completely independent of the Covenant. The international judicial community, that is the particular community constituted by the States parties to the Protocol of Signature of the Statute, was not conceived as being necessarily identical with the international community constituted through membership in the League of Nations. The Committee proposed new methods for electing the members of the Court, for the manner by which States might become parties to the Statute, and for the financing of the Court. The organic connection between the Court and the United Nations is much more pronounced than what had formerly existed between the Permanent Court and the League.
