COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

The International Criminal Court (ICC) sees delegates collaborate in teams of four to prosecute or defend one side of a case dealing with matters such as genocide, crimes against humanity, or war crimes. Teams produce written legal research briefs prior to the conference that serve as the foundation for their arguments. When a team’s case is not being heard, delegates act as judges for the other four cases being debated by the committee, following the legal sides of the arguments being made to render their verdicts.
