The Federation Court of Llorens is the judicial branch of the government of Llorens, which interprets the Constitution and laws passed by the Parliament in matters of dispute. One Chief Judge and six Associate Judges sit on the court, each representing one of the seven Llorenian provinces; one Judge is replaced each year so that each serves rotating seven-year terms.
The current Chief Judge is Derek Yeomann, who was an initial Judge confirmed to the Federation Court on 1 July 2016, with their term ending in 2023.
History[edit | edit source]
The Constitution of Llorens mandates that the first six Judges to be replaced will have shortened terms before the full seven-year terms commence, in order to allow for the seven-year rotating system. In effect, this means that the Chief Judge was the only original Judge appointed to a seven-year term, whereas the others spanned between one and six years.
