The appointment is not final, however, as S{\o}rensen must first prove his merit by voting with the SC in four “trial” cases. After the quota, SC judges will have a choice to confirm S{\o}rensen to the position.In this contribution, I examine the procedure for appointment of SC judges in Denmark, which has several interesting features. All Danish judges, except for the SC President, are appointed by the Minister of Justice, on the recommendation of JAC, in on an open call for applications. However, the SC has a decisive influence over the appointment of its own judges: due to 1) the informal pre-selection that precedes Council recommendation; 2) the composition of the JAC; 3) and the practice of trial-vote.",
