The International Court of Justice, 55 YALE L.J. 1049 (1946)


The International Court of Justice, "the principal judicial organ of
the United Nations," has replaced the League of Nations' Permanent
Court of International Justice with little change in the Court's constitution,
in its relationship to the parent international organization,
in the extent of its jurisdiction, or in the procedure prescribed under
its Statute. The new Court has a new name, a technically new Statute,
some new judges and, perhaps most important of all, some new members.
In matters of substance, however, the new Court is a continuation
of the old. It need not be expected, nor has it intended, to add
anything new to the structure of international order.
