International Judicial Lawmaking
University of Chicago Law School
U Illinois Law & Economics Research Paper No. LE05-006
Judges at the international level make law in the course of resolving disputes. The scope of this lawmaking power depends on the ability of states to constrain judicial actors. While formal mechanisms to over-rule international judges are relatively difficult to exercise, states have at their disposal various informal mechanisms to communicate their views to judges. This paper utilizes a framework of exit, voice and loyalty to consider these powers, as well as the features conducive to international judicial lawmaking.
