1. Like many concepts of international law, there is unfortunately no comprehensive definition of customary international law to which there is total agreement. The closest we have to a universal definition is and adopted by nearly every country (or ‘state’) in the world as members of the United Nations. One authority that has attempted to build upon this (rather limited) definition is the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which was set up under the Statute. Despite being(Statute Article 59), the ICJ is the “principal judicial organ” of the United Nations and its decisions tend to be followed by other international courts.2Its decisions are therefore of great influence for international legal scholars and jurists.

1. Society and rules are bound together. One could not have games, for example, without rules. Customary international law refers to binding legal rules that have developed on global or region levels through continued practice. The test of the existence of a customary rule of law is the extent to which it is observed in the practice and behaviour of states. Although this may seem a fuzzy or imprecise concept, it provides for flexibility. An example is the emergence and eventual adoption of the exclusive economic zone in the law of the sea. A measure of state practice may be provided by an array of instruments including treaties, declarations, agreements, and other pronouncements. In summary, several factors may be indicative of state practice: 1. the number of states that participate in the practice 2. national legislation demonstrating acceptance 3. decisions of national courts 4. positions adopted by ministers; diplomatic representatives and legal opinions of government lawyers 5. su...

1. International law consists of rules and principles governing the relations and dealings of nations with each other, as well as the relations between states and individuals, and relations between international organizations. Public international law concerns itself only with questions of rights between several nations or nations and the citizens or subjects of other nations. In contrast, private international law deals with controversies between private persons. These controversies arise out of situations which have a significant relationship to multiple nations. In recent years the line between public and private international law has became increasingly uncertain. Issues of private international law may also implicate issues of public international law, and many matters of private international law have substantial international significance.

Article 38.1 (b) of the ICJ statute refers to “International custom” as a source of international law, specifically, emphasizing the two requirements of state practice plus acceptance of the practice as obligatory.

Do states have the luxury of customary international law?

All the while, states do not have the luxury that humans do (in theory at least) of being able to move to jurisdictions with more agreeable laws. Customary international law is, evidently, a troublesome issue for the rule of law.

What is the new debate on customary international law?

The new question, the new debate, will be over what the implications of this shift in the traditional building blocks of customary international law are, not only on the international system as a whole, but also, surprisingly perhaps, on national (domestic nation state) legal systems as well.

How does the international court of justice deal with customary law?

The Statute of the International Court of Justice acknowledges the existence of customary international law in Article 38(1)(b), incorporated into the United Nations Charter by Article 92. The article states that the Court shall apply international custom while deciding disputes.
