Chapter Summary

This chapter shares the point of view of counsel for applicants participated at a Conference on international administrative law held in Paris on May 16, 2000. The occasion of the Conference was the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the World Bank Administrative Tribunal. The author addresses the following three themes in his capacity as counsel for applicants before international administrative tribunals: (i) oral proceedings; (ii) revision of judgments; and (iii) the use of jurisprudence to guide potential applicants. With respect to oral proceedings, which are generally favored by individual applicants and staff associations, a distinction should be made between the evidence-gathering and pleadings phases. Regarding revision of judgments, applicants who win their cases are very happy that judgments are final, while those who lose complain bitterly that they have no further avenue of appeal.
