To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the International Court of Justice, a distinguished group of international judges, practitioners and academics has undertaken a major review of its work. The chapters discuss the main areas of substantive law with which the Court has been concerned, and the more significant aspects of its practice and procedure in dealing with cases before it. It discusses the role of the Court in the international legal order, and its relationship with the UN’s political organs. The thirty-three chapters are presented under five headings: the Court; the sources and evidences of international law; substance of international law; procedural aspects of the Court’s work; the Court and the UN. It has been prepared in honour of Sir Robert Jennings, judge and sometime President of the Court.

  • Written by a group of the world’s leading international practitioners, judges and scholars in international law
  • First major critical assessment of the Court’s work after fifty years of its existence by an international group of experts
  • Skilfully edited and structured to address both the substantive work of the Court, its procedure and place within the United Nations system
