Legal Assistants

Supreme Court judges can have up to two legal assistants and a driver. Legal assistants are selected by the justices themselves; they must be lawyers who meet the legal criteria to be appointed as judges of first instance or appellate courts. Legal assistants are appointed by the President of the Supreme Court. The legal assistants’ job is to examine appeal court files, prepare memos where they express their opinion on the cases that will be reviewed by the Supreme Court Justices, respond to complaints, prepare the necessary materials and perform any other tasks assigned by their judge.
