Chief Judge – in most jurisdictions this term refers to the legal figure of a judge who has primary responsibility for the administration of a concrete court – i.e. being an administrative chairman of the Court. They may hear legal lawsuits as well, and represent the court before the authorities and any third parties. He signs the labor contracts when hiring employees in the administration of the court, reports before the BAR for the activity of the court, etc. This is why sometimes the chief judge is also called “administrative judge” or “president judge”. In the different legal systems, the position of the chief judge is either voted or appointed by the Council of judges.
