The Kosovo Specialist Chambers on Wednesday said the 40 lawyers included on its list would ensure "effective and professional legal representation" before the KSC.
The Hague, Netherlands-based court, created by a 2015 law passed after U.S. and European pressure, has jurisdiction in Kosovo over alleged war crimes suspects from the 1998-1999 war and its immediate aftermath.
Kosovo detached from Serbia following a three-month NATO air war in 1999 to stop a bloody Serbian crackdown against ethnic Albanian separatists. Kosovo's 2008 independence is recognized by 117 states but not by Serbia.
The court has yet to hear any cases.
