Thesis Title

Procedures of the International Court: Theory, Function and Practice

Thesis Summary

This thesis asks the question “what do theories of adjudication and civil procedure tell us about how the Court should manage its procedures?” It will consider the extent to which underlying rationales regarding the role of pleading, access to justice, efficiency, and case management which inform civil procedure reform in domestic courts may be applicable to the International Court.
