    Default Chief Justice

    One would tend to translate the above phrase as "Juez"..., but I was told the most appropriate equivalent would be Jefe de la Corte Suprema...
    Would this translation apply to any Spanish speaking country?

    Default Chief Justice

    In Argentina, we say "Presidente de la Corte Suprema" and in some provinces "Presidente de la Suprema Corte" ("Corte Suprema" or "Suprema Corte", according to the province).

    The other members of this court (the third level in the court system) are called "ministros", not "jueces".

    The members of this Supreme Court have a higher rank, that's why they are more than "jueces", they are "Ministros de la Corte Suprema" and one of them is the "Presidente de la Corte Suprema".

    I hope this helps!

    In some locations you might find the term "Máximo Magistrado de la Corte Suprema de Justicia" (Just another option)

    It depends on the context. Do you have more context?

    Los Justices son los jueces o magistrados que integran el mas alto Tribunal en algún páis o estado.

    En México, tratándose del ámbito federal, se llaman Ministros.

    Chief Justice es el Presidente de la Suprema Corte de Justicia de la nación
