International Court of JusticeAn overview of the International Court of Justice*


In general, judicial settlements involve the reference of disputes to permanent tribunals for a legally binding decision. In each domestic legal disagreement there is a type of court which in fact provides a legal solution over each dispute. But what happens on an International level? Are states able to settle their disputes on a legal basis? On an International scale, states are able to settle their disputes in International Tribunals.



There are several types of International tribunals, which monitor the application of International Law among states. Wherever a state breaks the law, there is a court for another state to address. As such, the International Court of Justice is a tribunal which addresses judicial settlements based on the International Law.
