Commentary on the Law of the International Criminal Court

The Commentary on the Law of the International Criminal Court (CLICC, often referred to as the 'Klamberg Commentary') provides a provision-by-provision analysis of the Rome Statute and the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Criminal Court. It will gradually become available online through this CMN site. It enables the user to find case-law, doctrine and comments efficiently and without cost. It is being developed by its Chief Editor Dr. Mark Klamberg and a team of international law experts.

CLICC has been made formal curriculum for international criminal law courses at several universities, including Peking University Law School, National University of Singapore Faculty of Law, University of Nottingham School of Law, Queen's University Faculty of Law, Korea University Law School, the Law Faculty of Stockholm University and the Law Faculty of the University of Oslo.
