Chapter Summary

Like all collegiate organs, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is headed by a President. In current practice, there are two patterns for the presidency of collegiate international organs. This chapter discusses ICJ in crisis management, and describes Article 95 of the UN Charter. Practice Direction VIII introduces certain restrictions on the qualification of persons chosen to act as agent, counsel or advocate in a case before the Court, in application of Article 42 of the Statute. The question of the General List of the ICJ, not as a technical administrative matter but as a legal issue, has recently come into prominence. The chapter examines its development. It outlines some possible points of contact between the ICJ and the International Criminal Court (ICC), and indicates the difficulties that are likely to be encountered. The chapter reviews the jurisdiction of the new ICC under the Rome Statute of 17 July 1998.
