International Court of Justice (ICJ) - Advanced Committee

The International Court of Justice, seated in The Hague, is the foremost judicial body of the United Nations. Its 15 judges settle disputes between countries according to international law, including such cases as the Obligation to Negotiate Access to the Pacific Ocean (Bolivia v. Chile) and Whaling in the Antarctic (Australia v. Japan). At OxiMUN, the presentation of cases and examination of witnesses function in a similar way to mooting, but with a much greater focus on the deliberation of cases between judges.
