English term or phrase: Asesor Legal del Ministro (de la Suprema Corte)
It is a position. Please take into account that, in many Latin American countries, a "Ministro de la Suprema Corte" is a Supreme Court Justice, and the "Asesor Legal del Ministro" is second to the justice. So I believe that Legal Advisor or Legal Counsel will not be the correct translations in this case, unless someone can prove that wrong.
I wonder whether the figure of the Deputy Justice exists in the supreme courts of the English-speaking Nations. Does anyone familiar with these institutions know?
Thanks a million!!

Spanish translation:I searched everywhere and I couldn't find anything such a deputy
Explanation:
justice for the supreme court... the best I could come up with and which may be what you are referring too is a "law clerk" a student of law which helps the judges with briefings, legal research, etc.

or "justice's clerk" which according to Alcaraz Varo = letrado consejero de los tribunales de magistrados, en Inglaterra y Gales; como la mayoria de los jueces que forman los Magistrates' Courts son legos, estos letrados, tambien llamados justices' clerks o magistrates' clerks, les asesoran en cuestiones juridicas y procesales" pero observa que estos son abogados y letrados.

Thank you very much, María! I know I'm a little late (just a little, about seven years), but I had not seen this was still open. Sorry about that, and many thanks again. Regards!

Advisor to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court [+ official Spanish title in parentheses]


Explanation:
In North American contexts, I have found "legal advisor to the Minister".

"Deputy Justice" doesn't seem to exist as such.

In each Canadian province, the Deputy Justice Minister and Attorney General is the top-ranked public servant in the Justice Department. The Deputy Minister reports directly to the Minister of Justice and oversees all aspects of department management to ensure that Justice is administered effectively. The Deputy also ADVISES the Minister and other members of government on Justice-related matters.

SEE the following rule (Alaska Court System) :
Rule 1. Administrative Director of Courts-Duties.
There shall be an administrative director of courts who shall, under policy guidelines provided by the supreme court: [...]

Be legal advisor for the chief justice and the supreme court in all legal matters not adjudicatory in nature,...

SEE following (Mexican context):
José Ramón Cossío heads the Law Department at the Mexico Autonomous
Institute of Technology (ITAM), where he teaches Constitutional Law and
Theory of Law. Cossío has published eight books and several articles on
legal and judicial issues and is a regular columnist for the Mexican magazine “Este País.” He also worked as an advisor to the Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court for five years. He holds a Doctorate in Law from Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

"Clerk" or "Law clerk"?


Explanation:
This is a guess -- I couldn't find the exact term anywhere, either. But as far as I know, "deputy justice" doesn't exist in the US Supreme Court.

Good luck!

Registrar of the supreme court


Explanation:
In many english speaking countries or countries which use english as their official language, the title registrar actually means a person who is a judge or another law professional such as lawyer, etc., acting as the direct support to the (chief)justice of the supreme court in both legal and administrative matters.
