The Council of Justice (Romanian: Consiliul de Justiție) is the supreme court of Juclandia and the country's nominal court of last resort. As it is the only court in Juclandia, it handles all cases filed in the Kingdom, and serves as well as the constitutional court of the country. The Free State of Lenia, an autonomous republic within Juclandia, has its own court.

The Court was established in August 2012, when the Constitutional Revision of 2012 entered into force. The first set of members of the High Court were elected by the Council of State (the upper house of the Great National Assembly) on 12 September 2012. Before May 2015, when a new Constitution was adopted, the supreme court was called the High Court of Cassation and Justice (Romanian: Înalta Curte de Casație și Justiție)

Length of term

Initially, when the Council of Justice was created as the High Court of Cassation and Justice in the aftermath of the 2012 constitutional amendment, the members of the Court were named for a term of 6 months. The Constitution of 2015 extended their term to one year, and the 2017 constitutional amendment extended their term to two years.
