The Supreme Court of Silofais is the highest judicial authority in the Republic of Silofais. It is the court of last resort for all matters criminal and civil, and is also vested constitutionally with the power of judicial review; that is, the power to review laws, executive orders and other actions of the government for constitutionality and to strike out those that violate the Constitution.

They were nominated at the same time on the 3rd of June, 2017,[1] and the Chamber of Delegates confirmed their nominations during the same session on the 9th.
