"I often find it important to be able to see at a glance what a case was about, what the Court decided, and who were the personalities involved in every phase of a case, as judges and as agents and counsel. This book aims to meet that requirement. There is also a practical side to this, in light of the Court's wish, in Practice Directions VII and VIII, to introduce different 'cooling off periods' for different personalities connected with the Court's judicial work. [...]
For the practitioner and for the student the most important parts of this book are the indexes to the Statute and the Rules of Court and the lists of treaties and other legal instruments cited."
