Chapter Summary

Article 26 of the Statute, a heavily revised version of Article 26 of the Statute of the Permanent Court, provides for two different types of chamber, a standing or special chamber for dealing with particular categories of cases and a chamber for dealing with a particular case, formed at the request of the parties. The main difference is that States may proceed directly to any standing chamber. If they wish for an ad hoc chamber they have first to address the Court itself, which will proceed to form the chamber. This difference is established in Article 91 of the Rules which only concerns the standing chambers and the Chamber of Summary Procedure.
