Oxford Reports on International Courts of General Jurisdiction

Overview

Oxford Reports on International Courts of General Jurisdiction (ICGJ) aims to provide all ORIL users with comprehensive coverage of decisions from the most important international courts of general jurisdiction.

ICGJ covers all contentious and advisory cases from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and its predecessor, the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ), as well as the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA). Basic orders regarding the setting of time limits for the filing of written and/or oral submissions by the parties are excluded from these content sets.

ICGJ cases are published with a short headnote detailing key information about the decision, rather than a full report. This headnote contains basic information about the case including dates, parties and judges, but also provides indicators as to the topical keywords applied to the case, the core issue(s), and any previous or subsequent stages.
