UN Internal Justice System

Office of Administration of Justice

The Office of Administration of Justice is an independent office responsible for the overall coordination of the formal system of administration of justice, and for contributing to its functioning in a fair, transparent and efficient manner.

The Office of Administration of Justice provides substantive, technical and administrative support to the judges of the UN Dispute Tribunal and UN Appeals Tribunal through the registries, as well as to the Office of Staff Legal Assistance. The Tribunals have professional independent judges adjudicating cases. The Office of Staff Legal Assistance has professional lawyers who provide independent legal assistance to staff members, in accordance with standards established for legal practitioners. With its headquarters in New York, the Office of Administration of Justice also has a presence — through the UNDT registries and the branch offices of the Office of Staff Legal Assistance — in Geneva, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, and Beirut.
