International court of justice

In 2010, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivered three Judgments, made nine Orders, and had 17 contentious cases and one advisory procedure pending before it. In a 28 October address to the General Assembly, the ICJ President, Judge Hisashi Owada, noted that during the period from 1 August 2009 to 31 July 2010, the coverage of the cases that the Court was entrusted to deal with was broader in scope than ever before, with each case presenting distinct legal and factual elements. He added that the increased recourse by States to icj for the judicial settlement of their disputes testified to the growing consciousness among political leaders of those States of the importance of the rule of law in the international community.
