Chapter Summary

This chapter clearly indicates that the internal functioning of the Tribunal is a matter of open record. This does not mean that the deliberations of the Tribunal should take place in public view. The internal functioning comprehends the internal judicial practice of the Tribunal. Articles 40 to 42 of the Rules and the Resolution cover such matters as the quorum for meetings of the Tribunal, the Seabed Disputes Chamber and special chambers; availability of judges and judges ad hoc at meetings; judicial vacations; public holidays; secrecy of the Tribunal's deliberations; the Tribunal's deliberations before, during and after oral proceedings; the Drafting Committee and its deliberations; and voting on judgments. 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 internal functioning of the Tribunal.

Keywords: ad hoc; drafting committee; judges; Seabed Disputes Chamber; special chamber; Tribunal
