This chapter discusses the little remembered ‘Provisional Report on the Revision of the Statute’ prepared by Sir Hersch Lauterpacht shortly after he took office at the International Court of Justice in 1955. In it, Lauterpacht discussed possible changes and revisions of the Court’s Statute in order for it better to achieve its mission to administer international justice. He addressed, inter alia, possible changes to the composition of the court, its jurisdiction, and extending access to private parties to the court. Although the Provisional Report was never followed by a final version, its spirit has continued to influence reform efforts in international dispute resolution.
