Chapter Summary

As an international organization, the Tribunal covers not only the judicial body but also the secretariat ("Registry"), which assists the judges and ensures the functioning of the institution. The functions to be carried out by the Registry are not limited to legal tasks required for the cases (such as correspondence with the parties, assistance to the President, judges, or to the drafting Committee, collection of documentation, legal studies, preparation of judicial records) but relate to all aspects of an administration. The Registry is headed by the Registrar, who is elected by the judges of the Tribunal for a term of five years. As the head of the secretariat (or Registry), the Registrar carries out his/her functions under the control of the Tribunal. This chapter of the book The Rules of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea: A Commentary contains articles and commentaries related to the Registry.
