Show Summary Details


The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This chapter presents sample exam questions about the legal system for peaceful settlement of disputes, including the international system of arbitration and the procedures of binding judicial decisions and advisory Opinions in the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The chapter begins with a general question on dispute settlement and then follows with three specific questions about the practice and procedure of the ICJ. There is a question on the unique international mechanism of international organizations requesting advisory Opinions, and another on the complicated preliminary issue of the court’s jurisdiction. Finally, there is a question on whether the ICJ can review the decisions of the Security Council — that is, whether the ICJ is a body capable of judicial review of the actions of the UN.
