This limit may be increased by the agreement of all of the member states if necessary. Under the Agreement establishing the court, at least three judges of the full complement of ten are required to possess expertise in international law including international trade law  and one judge is also required to be from the civil law tradition similar to such jurisdictions as Haiti and Suriname. The candidates must have practiced or taught law, or been a judge, in at least one of the following: .
The RJLSC does not and is not allowed to consider potential judges by recommendations from contracting member states, but only by a prospective judge's individual application. Once a judge is appointed, they are allowed to hold office until the age of 72,  but are allowed to continue in office, if necessary for a further three months in order to deliver a judgment or to do any other thing in proceedings that he or she has heard. The President serves also as Chairman of the RJLSC and in the Court will preside over hearings and deliberations; direct the Court to sit in such number of divisions as he or she chooses; appoint one or more judges to determine interlocutory matters; and in consultation with the five other Judges selected by him for the purpose establish rules for the exercise of the original jurisdiction of the Court and rules for regulating the practice and procedure in the exercise of the appellate jurisdiction of the Court.
The President automatically takes precedence over all other Judges of the Court, with the seniority of the other Judges being determined by the dates of their appointment. In the event that the President is unable to perform the duties of office or if there is a vacancy in the office of President , the most senior Judge shall perform the role of President and shall be appointed to perform that role by the Chairman of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM until the President can resume those functions or, in the case of a vacancy in the Presidency, until someone has been appointed to and assumes the functions of the office.
Where there is no difference in seniority among the Judges, one of the Judges will simply be selected by the Heads of Government to perform the role of President in the event of a vacancy in Presidency or the inability of the President to perform the functions of office. The President may only serve for one, non-renewable 7-year term or until the age of 72 whichever is earlier   but is allowed to continue in office, if necessary for a further three months in order to deliver a judgment or to do any other thing in proceedings that he or she has heard.
While having a seat in Trinidad, the Court is also given the authority under the same Article III of the Agreement establishing the CCJ to sit, as circumstances warrant, in the territory of any other Contracting Party.
As a result of the CCJ's planned self-sufficiency in terms of funding, when the Court sits in another country in its jurisdiction, it pays the cost for travelling, accommodation and other expenses and only requires the host state to provide a location for the Court to sit and to provide security and ground transportation to and from the venue of the sitting. Visitors may partake in guided tours of individuals and groups of 20 or less facilitated by the Court.
Tours usually last 45 minutes, and include welcome messages, walk throughs the building, courtroom demonstrations, and opportunities to meet the judges and staff of the court. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
