Welcome to the Virtual Tribunals collection website. The ultimate vision of this project is to compile a comprehensive database of international criminal tribunal records, from the post-WWII cases through the contemporary tribunals, fully digitized, and rendered searchable through a single online portal.

Currently, trial records from the Special Panels for Serious Crimes in East Timor (SPSC) and digitized documents of IMT Nuremberg from the International Court of Justice are included for browsing and searching. Access and preservation of the archive of the IMT Nuremberg is made possible due to the generous support of the Taube Philanthropies.

Follow the links below to read more about the SPSC and IMT or use the search box above and the browse facets to the left to begin exploring the materials across all collections at once. See the How to Search the Collections page for tips on searching using keywords and facets, and how to search across all collections.
