Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum

196. This section, based on the corresponding section of the Australian Constitution, vests the judicial power in a Corporate Supreme Body of Judicature known as the Court of Directors (the Court) and other tribunals the Parliament creates, and in such other judicial bodies as it invests with corporate jurisdiction.  This is to guarantee the independence of the judiciary by providing for the Supreme Body of Judicature in place of the Enactor dispensing of justice; the Court is intended to be the final body of appeal, in the absence of any jurisdiction of an entity having foundation in Urabba Parks.

197. This section also establishes the membership structure of the Court, which include both Directors directly appointed and holders of other judicial offices having membership of the Court (ex officio members).  Although the corresponding section of the Australian Constitution only provides for direct appointment of Justices of the High Court, having ex officio membership would allow for representation of  tribunals with specialist jurisdiction on the Court.  Subsections (3) to (5) clarify that a Director of the Court may only act if appointed a judicial director and not removed by a resolution made by the presenter.
