13 Feb 2019 - The United Nations Dispute Tribunal (UNDT) Vacancy Announcement

The United Nations (UN) is seeking judges for its internal system of administration of justice that addresses employment-related disputes.

The internal justice system includes a first instance United Nations Dispute Tribunal (UNDT) and an appellate instance United Nations Appeals Tribunal (UNAT).

The UNDT sits in New York, Geneva and Nairobi and is comprised of three full-time judges and six half-time judges. The full-time and half-time judges serve for non-renewable seven-year terms.

The UNAT is comprised of seven judges, who also serve for a fixed non-renewable seven-year term, and its seat is in New York.

The UN is presently undertaking a selection process to fill four half-time judicial positions in the UNDT.

Half-time judges work for up to six months in a calendar year in New York, Geneva or Nairobi. Half-time judges may not be deployed in a particular year or may be deployed less than a cumulative period of six months a year if their deployment is not justified by the UNDT’s caseload.
