Election of Judges to the International Court of Justice
With the election of new judges to the International Court of Justice scheduled for the 6th of November 2014, we are making freely available some core readings to explain who the judges are, what they do, and how they are appointed.
- From The Oxford Handbook of Adjudication—Who are International Judges?
- From the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law, Karin Oellers-Frahm on Judges and Arbitrators
- From The Statute of the International Court of Justice, A Commentary, in-depth explanations of the background and practice relating to the appointment of judges at the ICJ:
- Hugh Thirlway’s The Law and Procedure of the International Court of Justice analyses how in practice the composition of the Court can change for particular cases. Two chapters examine practice from 1954-1989 and from 1990-2011.
