(p.243) 9 Developing Common Ethical Standards before International Courts
Professional Ethics at the International Bar

Arman Sarvarian

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the feasibility of professionalization through the articulation of common ethical standards for counsel. Through analysis of the nascent efforts in professional organizations such as the International Law Association, International Bar Association, and Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe to codify such standards, it assesses the utility of the exercise and the process by which these principles can be applied in practice. It considers the legal powers (eg the ‘inherent jurisdiction’ or ‘inherent powers’ of international courts) and practical ability of international judges to regulate counsel as well as the issues that have arisen in the nascent process of articulating common ethical standards in professional organizations, including the ILA Hague Principles on Ethical Standards for Counsel Appearing before International Courts and Tribunals. Moreover, the chapter examines the jurisprudence of international courts and tribunals concerning regulatory powers for counsel and the legal and practical problems associated with regulation of counsel by the international judiciary.

Keywords:   international judges, International Bar Association, International Law Association, Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe, Hague Principles, inherent jurisdiction, inherent powers
