Repertory of Decisions of the International Court of Justice, 1947-1992
This repertory presents in "manual" form the case law of the International Court of Justice. It attempts a popularization of the Court's maxims in plain language for easy reading so as to provide not only the internationalists but also practitioners and students with a full and readily consultable digest on an important body of judicial opinions, in the knowledge of the Court's decisive role in ascertaining, noting and developing the rules of international law. The repertory embodies a corpus of legal maxims synthesized ex novo from decisions of the Court. These rules have been arranged in a systematic order under headings and subheadings and classed in a logical sequence under each heading in order that the reader may proceed from the general to the specific. The repertory also contains an extensive section dealing with the procedure of the International Court and the interpretation of the procedural rules contained in its Statute and Rules of Court. A smaller section deals with advisory proceedings serving the object of an appeal.
