About the SJC

The Supreme Judicial Court is the Commonwealth's highest appellate court. A chief justice and six associate justices make up the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC). The seven justices hear appeals on a broad range of criminal and civil cases from September to May and issue written opinions that are posted online. The SJC also supervises the judiciary and the bar, makes or approves rules for court operations, and gives advisory opinions, upon request, to the governor and the legislature.
