Chapter 2 focuses on the Tribunal as an autonomous international judicial body set up by the Convention. Section 1 refers to the Tribunal's legal status, seat, and privileges and immunities, while sections 2 and 3 examine the status of the judges of the Tribunal (elections, conditions of service, privileges and immunities, judges ad hoc), the President, and experts under art. 289 of the Convention. The Tribunal's chambers (Seabed Disputes Chamber, special chambers), the Tribunal's committees, and the official languages are the items successively exposed in sections 4–7. Administrative and budgetary matters relating to the Tribunal and its Registry (Secretariat), and the Tribunal's external relations are presented in sections 8–10, respectively.
