International Court of Justice
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. Established in June 1945, the Court settles legal disputes between member states in accordance with international treaties, conventions, and the general principles of law. In this session, delegates will represent neutral judges (rather than countries), and will use legal reasoning to come to decisions on two cases.
This committee is geared to delegates of any skill level and interests. Please note that ICJ rules and procedure run differently than all other MACMUN committees.
This committee will consist of 15 delegates representing neutral judges, discussing the following cases:
1. Relocation of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem (Palestine v. United States of America)
2. Protections against Discriminatory Use of Citizenship Law (Ukraine v. Russian Federation)
