Judiciary of the United Roman Empire
The Judiciary of the United Roman Empire is a term that refers to the entirety of all courts within the bounds of the United Roman Empire. The Judiciary includes the four primary court systems as well as all minor courts.
The Supreme Court of the United Roman Empire consists of ten judges, all of whom are appointed by the emperor every decade. Each justice is given a term of one year as Supreme Court Chief Justice. During this term as Chief Justice, they posses the ability to overrule fellow Judges and may have one extra vote, but only in cases of a tie vote.
If a justice were to die during their term, the emperor may appoint a justice from one of the lower courts to take their place, but this justice is not eligible for a term as Chief Justice. If a deceased justice's term as Chief Justice approaches, the remaining members of the court vote on which of the remaining eligible members will sit in as the Chief Justice. No justice may serve more than two years in a row as Chief Justice.

Court of Justice
In cases of capital crimes, a jury of randomly selected but carefully screened private citizens tries an individual or group in an open and public court.
Court of Disputes
In cases of private disputes involving property, fiscal disputes and personal injury, this court is employed. Citizens present their claims to a judge or jury and receive their ruling from the same source. Juries are only appointed at the request of the plaintiff or defendant, but both must agree to a jury trial.
Court of Military Justice
This court is employed in cases of military misconduct and is thus overseen by the Imperial Security Council and the emperor's Praetorian Guard. Trials in this court are not public and are considered classified unless otherwise noted.
