The International Court of Justice, the main judicial branch of the United Nations, is a body that settles legal disputes between states. It also provides advisory opinions on legal questions as requested by United Nations organs and specialized agencies. Delegates in this committee will be able to represent Justices and discuss issues such as nuclear disarmament, land disputes, and the application of United Nations conventions. Delegates will also be able to gain a better understanding of some of the international legal obligations of states as well as how judicial disputes are settled on the international stage.
