International Court Of Justice
Topic 1: Immunities and Criminal Proceedings (Equatorial Guinea v. France)
Topical 2: The Marshall Islands' Nuclear Zero Cases
Created under the Charter of the United Nations, the International Court of Justice began its work in April of 1946. In 2017 the ICJ is still one of the leading authority on matters of law, ruling on cases that comprise of contention between states in a binding manner, and non-binding rulings on questions of international law. As a delegate of the ICJ committee, representatives will portray the roles of judges in the ICJ. Judges will then listen to testimonies brought before the court and in collaboration with their prior research, will present opinions and decisions on the topic at hand. And while many ICJ cases are decided in many years, the judges of the ICJ at BosMUN will have but the weekend to provide sound legal judgment.
