Established By Law

Definition

To administer criminal justice in a municipal setting, an international tribunal must be “established by law.” This term is most commonly defined under general principles of international law as pertaining to courts which are established pursuant to the rule of law. For an international court to be created pursuant to the rule of law and thus established by law, it must be established in accordance with the proper international standards, and it must provide all guarantees of fairness, justice, and even-handedness, in full conformity with internationally recognized human rights instruments.
