In the US constitution, there are actually no requirements given to be a Supreme Court Justice. However, the Senate has to confirm any appointments and they would quickly reject any obviously unqualified nominee. In fact, in the past they have rejected several candidates that are experienced judges with law degrees from accredited law schools for a large variety of reasons.
