Abstract : The basic question is whether or not the United States should continue to adhere to its protective policy regarding submission of national issues to the International Court of Justice. The paper includes a brief history of developments in international law leading to U.S. involvement. The discussion briefly looks at some of the more important cases decided and weighs the probable outcome had the U.S. been a litigant. The writer considers auguments made for maintenance of the present U.S. position and discusses viability of the various positions. An analysis is made of a typical international type problem and shows the solutions adopted by U.S. courts when faced with the same fact situation. Finally, the author states a position relative to future U.S. status before the court. (Author)
