Hart Publishing announced the publication of a new book by Robert Kolb on the International Court of Justice. It is an English translation of his book the La Cour Internationale de Justice (Paris, Pedone, 2013). The book -- we are told -- examines the Statute of the Court, its procedures, conventions, and practices in a helpful way to assist international lawyers. It covers the composition of the Court, the role of ad hoc judges, the use of smaller Chambers, jurisdiction, the law applied, preliminary objections, the range of contentious disputes which may be submitted to the Court, the status of advisory opinions, the Court's relationship to the Security Council, applications to intervene, the status of judgments, and remedies. The book was translated by Alan Perry, Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales.
Robert Kolb is Professor of Public International Law at the University of Geneva. He is also Counsel for Lalive Attorneys-at-Law, Geneva. More information about the book and how to order it is available from Hart Publishing by clicking here.
