1 A recent book by Neil Duxbury, The Nature and Authority of Precedent (2008), carefully explores this point in Anglo-American common law whence the principle originates. The practice of the International Court of systematically referring to its cases and considering their findings is similar: see Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Croatia v. Serbia) (Jurisdiction), Judgment of 18 November 2008, where the Court explained at para. 53 that ‘[t]o the extent that the decisions contain findings of law, the Court will treat them as it treats all previous decisions: that is to say that, while those decisions are in no way binding on the Court, it will not depart from its settled jurisprudence unless it finds very particular reasons to do so.’
