Summary/Abstract: International Court of Justice, from the present point of view, is one of the international institutions with long history and tradition. However, its role and position in the international relations can be questioned. For better understanding of the Court and its real impact in contemporary world it is recommendable to look back and trace its origins. The idea of peaceful settlement of disputes and establishment of an independent and impartial forum is old and can be traced as far as to the existence of states. First steps in organizing international community according to this issue are usually positioned within the Hague Conferences of 1899. and 1907. Product of these conferences is the Permanent Court of Arbitration, which is the first judicial institution in international relations. Altered structure of international community after the First World War produced Permanent Court of International Justice. Main features of this court have been transferred to the International Court of Justice, as we know it today.
