New report on Judicial Terms

The Reports section of this website has a new report on the length of judicial terms for highest courts. About 10% of national constitutions provide for an unspecified life term for supreme court justices; another 5% provide for a life term subject to a specified retirement age. For countries with designated terms, they range from one (!) to fifteen years in length.
