Supreme Court of Denmark

Supreme Court Justices 


The Supreme Court comprises one president and eighteen other justices. One of the justices is chairman of the Appeals Committee for a two-year period, and one is chairman of the Appeals Permission Board which considers petitions for leave to appeal in the third instance.

The justices of the Supreme Court are – like other judges – appointed by the Minister of Justice on recommendation from the independent
Judicial Appointments Council. This Council is composed of a Supreme Court justice, a high court judge, a district court judge, a lawyer and two representatives of the public. Following a public job advertisement, a candidate is elected. Such candidate must pass a test by rendering his or her opinion in four Supreme Court cases and be assessed by the appointed judges before being appointed. The president is elected by and from among the justices and appointed by the Minister of Justice. The current Supreme Court justices have previously worked for the other courts, the central administration, the Prosecution or as lawyers or professors.

Below you will find links to the CVs of the justices.
