Law/Patents - Law (general) / judicial system
Japanese term or phrase: SHUNIN SAIBANKAN
One of a panel of judges in a district court in Japan. a panel usually consists of a presiding judge and two associate judges. of those 2, one is appointed to be SHUNIN SAIBANKAN who is responsible to write a sentence. In Japanese, SHUNIN usually means a chief or supervisor, but I think "chief judge" is quite misleading as SHUNIN SAIBANKAN is not the most senior one, rather s/he tends to be the most junior one. Thank you for your help.
