The Supreme Court of Norway has 20 justices headed by the Chief Justice. A broad composition of the court is considered important.

The justices must come from and have professional experience from various places in the country. There must be a diversity in professional experience and careers and the justices are recruited from the public as well as the private sector. Gender and age composition must be satisfactory, but the basic condition is high professional qualifications.
