Since its inception, the ICJ has served as the primary judicial branch of the United Nations, using international law to settle legal disputes between states and to provide legal opinions to the various branches of the UN. The ICJ is an advanced, intensive, and innovative committee that requires strong command of the English language, exceptional written and oral abilities, and superb familiarity with MUN rules and procedures. It is a committee for experienced delegates looking to further their MUN careers. Prospective candidates can apply to serve as either an Advocate or Judge. The Advocates present the case of the state under question with memorandums and solid legal arguments and the Judges decide the verdict.
