Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts),
Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen
- How do those courts and tribunals ‘do things with words’?
- How do they interpret and develop the meaning of the texts that lay down the procedural and substantive law that they have to apply?
- What methods do they choose?
- How do they apply – and arguably exceed - their discretionary powers in the sphere of legal interpretation?
- How do they make law, either by the means of officially binding precedents or otherwise (as with the new lex mercatoria, largely developed through arbitral case law due to its persuasive authority).
- How does the courts’ and tribunals’ institutional status and form (public, private, permanent, ad hoc, with composition fixed or changing a casu ad casum) affect their interpretative approaches?
- How are legal concepts developed through cross-referencing and cross-fertilization embedded in interpretative processes?
- What makes legal discourses and legal interpretation of particular courts and tribunals unique – and what is borrowed from the domestic environment?
