The International Court of Justice (ICJ) published its 2018-19 Annual Report on October 30, 2019. The Report notes that the workload of the Court has "grown considerably," and that "the Registry has sought to maintain a high level of efficiency and quality in its work." During the period under review, the ICJ delivered judgments in three cases, issued one Advisory Opinion, and handed down 16 orders. As of July 31, 2019, there were 16 cases on the Court's List. The Report highlighted the "crucial role" the ICJ plays in maintaining and promoting the rule of law and noted that "[e]verything the Court does is aimed at promoting and reinforcing the rule of law," even down to ensuring that its judgments are widely publicized and clear.
