Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an insight into the organisation of the judges work in the first years of the Court, that is, the qualifications and election of the judges, the election of the Presidency and the assignment of judges to divisions, the divisions and Chambers and the plenary sessions. According to article 36(6)(a) of the Statute, the judges are elected by secret ballot at a meeting of the Assembly of the States Parties (ASP) convened under article 112. According to article 39(2)(a) (Chambers), The judicial functions of the Court shall be carried out in each division by Chambers. Under regulations 17 and 18, the Presidency is responsible for establishing and maintaining a duty roster of judges of the Pre-Trial Division and a duty roster of Legal Officers of the Chambers. The drafting of the Regulations was one of the main focuses of the judges in the 2003-2004 plenary sessions.
