The Rules Committee provides oversight and guidance regarding proposed rule amendments throughout the ICJ rule-making process. The Rules Committee is responsible for administering the Commission’s rule-making process, drafting proposed rule amendments and considering proposed rule amendments from other committees and regions. The Rules Committee ensures the rule amendments are properly formatted and include adequate justifications.
Membership is limited to 2-3 members from each of the four regions. The members update their respective region on the activities of the committee at the regional meetings. In odd numbered years (such as 2023), members meet face-to-face to review comments and finalize recommendations. Members also participate in the presentation at the Annual Business Meeting. This is the only committee that operates on a 2-year cycle.
