    The total number of judges of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is 15. The International Court Justice is the main Judicial organ of the UN, also known as World Court. This is established in 1946 to replace the permanent Court of International Justice. The Court is composed of 15 judges serving in their individual capacities. Candidates are first nominated by the national candidates, judges are elected to nine-year terms by an accomplished majority in both the General Assembly (97 votes) and Security Council (8 votes).

    The Court also gives advisory opinions to the United Nations and its specialized agencies. Although the judges do not represent their nations but act as independent agents, there cannot be more than one judge of each nationality.
