About the book:

This title is one of the most important documents in the
establishment of the Permanent Court of International Justice (1920-
1946). Because the Statute of the Permanent Court was taken over by
the International Court of Justice (since 1945) nearly unchanged, it
remains of enormous practical and scholarly importance today.
In effect, this is the only documentary evidence we have of the
drafters' train of thought. More than a historical document, this
title is a most important tool in the interpretation of the Statute
of the ICJ.
Between 16 June and 24 July 1920 an international group of ten
distinguished jurists including Elihu Root, Albert de Lapradelle and
Lord Phillimore held 35 meetings in the Peace Palace in The Hague to
draft the statute for the Permanent Court of International Justice
(PCIJ) of the League of Nations. The Procès-Verbaux documents the
proceedings of these sessions.
The Annexes contain the texts of relevant supporting documents,
including early drafts of the statute. With index. Not widely
available at university libraries.
