Chapter Summary

Article 30 of the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice required the Court to ‘frame rules for regulating its procedure. The Permanent Court first adopted Rules of Court in its preliminary session on 24 March 1922, thus making itself open for business. Following the first general election of the members of the Court in the League of Nations Assembly of 1921, the Permanent Court convened in its preliminary session on 30 January 1922. Following the Statute of the Permanent Court, Article 30 of the Statute of the present International Court of Justice likewise requires the Court to ‘frame rules for carrying out its functions. Regarding draft article 114 (ITLOS Rules, Article 128), one delegation thought that the ten-year period was too long, especially when applied to judgments of the Sea-Bed Disputes Chamber.
