International court of justice (ICJ) commonly referred to as world court was set up in 1945 under the United Nations act. It is not the first world court as the name may suggest but it was established as the successor of permanent international court of justice. It deals mainly with international issues such as settling disputes between countries and it uses a constitution that is recognized internationally in carrying out its activities. Initially it was not effective since many countries had not registered and accepted the laws and rules binding to this statute. Currently ICJ is the Supreme Court and all the countries in the world are suppose to be part of the council so that arising disputes can be solved amicably (Schwebel,1987).
