The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This chapter presents sample exam questions about the principle of legal personality in the international legal system and how a state is defined and recognized within international law. The questions deal with issues such as the various entities which might possess rights, duties, and powers within the international legal system; the classic legal formula for creation of a state and the debate as to whether self-determination should be an additional criterion; theories of recognition in international law; and state secession.
