The Constitution of Turkmenistan forbids the creation of emergency courts and other institutions vested with the powers of the court.

The Supreme Court of Turkmenistan oversees all legal proceedings, including civil, administrative, arbitration, and criminal cases. It is the country’s highest judicial authority. The president of the Supreme Court is appointed by the president of Turkmenistan and approved by Assembly (Mejilis) of Turkmenistan. As of 2018, the President of the Supreme Court of Turkmenistan was Klychmurad Khallyev, former Deputy Minister of Justice and former director of the Democracy and Human Rights Institute.
