We are pleased to announce the introduction of the International Court of Justice committee to AMLMUN 2020. ICJ is typically a committee addressed to advanced and experienced delegates, seeking to expand their MUN experience with a nontraditional committee focusing on legal matters and procedures.
The International Court of Justice is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. The Charter of the UN established it in June 1945. The seat of the Court is at the Peace Palace in The Hague. It is composed of 15 judges, who are elected for a nine-year term by the General Assembly and the Security Council. In accordance with international law, the Court’s role is to settle legal disputes submitted by states, as well as to give advice on legal questions to authorized UN organs and specialized agencies.
In this year’s conference, the Court will examine the case of Alleged Violations of the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations, and Consular Rights (Islamic Republic of Iran v. the United States of America).
On the form below, you may submit your application for the position of a judge or an advocate. While advocates work in pairs, applicants for this position must fill the form out separately and indicate their partner’s name when selecting their position.
The form is closed. (Deadline passed 3/11/2019)
