This chapter comments on Article 37 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 37 consists of two paragraphs, the first concerning the election of a replacement judge in the event of a vacancy, and the second dealing with the term of office of the new judge. A vacancy may be created by death or incapacitation of a judge, by resignation, or by removal pursuant to article 46 of the Statute. It may also occur when a judge has actually been elected but withdraws prior to taking the oath of office. The term of a replacement judge is the remainder of the predecessor's term. It begins on the date of election.
