Justices of the Montana Supreme Court serve eight year terms.

If a vacancy occurs, the governor appoints a new judge from a list created by the Montana Judicial Nominating Commission. Once confirmed by the Montana Senate, the judge holds office until the next general election, when he will be able to run either for re-election or retention for the rest of the unexpired term.[1]

Candidates for chief justice are elected during the regular campaign cycle.

In order to serve on the court, one must be:

  • a U.S. citizen;
  • a state resident for at least two years; and
  • licensed to practice law in the state for at least five years.[2]
