This chapter addresses the problem of corollaries in the law. It provides brief notice to the corollaries of the legal prohibition of resort to force with the exception of the principle of non-recognition of changes. It is generally noted that neutrality remains as a status in a considerable number of situations. The effect of duress on the validity of treaties is also shown. The considered corollaries by no means exhaust the suggestions which may be made, with varying degrees of cogency, for the adjustment of various parts of the law in order to ensure congruence with the illegality of the threat or use of force, and some other questions deserve mention.

Keywords: corollaries; force; legal prohibition; illegality; neutrality
