Constitutional Court (ss 4 and 12)
The Constitutional Court consists of the Chief Justice of South Africa, the Deputy Chief Justice and nine other judges. The seat of the Constitutional Court is in
Johannesburg, but if it appears to the Chief Justice that it is expedient or in the interest of justice to hold its sitting at a place elsewhere than Johannesburg, it may hold such sitting elsewhere. Any matter before the Constitutional Court must be heard by at least eight judges.
Supreme Court of Appeal (ss 5 and 13)
The Supreme Court of Appeal consists of the President of the Supreme Court of Appeal, the Deputy President of the Supreme Court of Appeal and as many judges as my be determined in accordance with the prescribed criteria, and approved by the President. The seat of the Supreme Court of Appeal is in Bloemfontein, but if it appears to the President of the Supreme Court of Appeal that it is expedient or in the interest of justice to hold its sitting at a place elsewhere than Bloemfontein, it may hold such sitting elsewhere.
Proceedings of the Supreme Court of Appeal must ordinarily be presided over by five judges, but the President of the Supreme Court of Appeal may direct that an appeal in a criminal or civil matter be heard before a court consisting of three judges; or whenever it appears to him or her that any matter should in view of its importance be heard before a court consisting of a larger number of judges, direct that the matter be heard before a court consisting of as many judges as he or she may determine.
