The International Court for the Continent of Skrelleland is a political body from L. Sprague de Camp's 1940 alternate history story "The Wheels of If." It is a trouble-shooting international tribunal established to deal with disputes among the various Skrellelander nations. Camp did not go into detail describing this court, which only shows up at the end of the story when protagonist Ib Scoglund ( Allister Park) joins it as a judge, having cut his diplomatic teeth in a Vinlander border war.

If there was any OTL group which Camp based the court on, it might have been the League of Nations, as the United Nations did not yet exist when the story was published.

Judge Ib Scoglund's first mission for the International Court was to South Skrelleland, to mediate a border dispute between the Empire of Tawantiinsuuju and the Emirate of the dar al-Harb.
