Chapter Summary

The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (&t;the Tribunal&t;) was constituted by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (&t;the Convention&t;): Annex VI to the Convention sets out the Statute of the Tribunal (&t;the Statute&t;). This chapter describes the judicial deliberations of the Tribunal by reference to the terms of its Statute and the Resolution on its Internal Judicial Practice. The Tribunal is charged with the task of deciding disputes about the interpretation and application of the Convention and related texts. With 21 members, the Tribunal is significantly larger than the International Court of Justice, which has 15 members. Whilst the Statute remains largely silent on the question of judicial deliberations, the Rules of the Tribunal contain some basic principles which govern aspects of the internal judicial procedure.
