Abstract

This paper comments on, and makes proposals for improving, the rule-making at the International Court of Justice (ICJ or Court), with a view to making it easier for States, particularly those that are represented by lawyers who are not ICJ specialists, to litigate before the Court. The paper argues that (1) all “rules”, including provisions of the Rules of Court, Practice Directions and notes for parties should be centralized and integrated and the “rules” be called “rules”, and (2) new rules be promulgated in a way that would keep the old article numbers as much as possible and only after some notice is given to the public, with a view to receiving comments.
