All federal officials, including US Supreme Court justices, must take an oath promising to uphold the US Constitution.

The Constitution Oath, mandated by Article VI, Section 3 of the Constitution and by 5 USC § 3331 (federal law), is sworn by all federal employees except the President:

"I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

US Supreme Court justices also take a Judicial Oath of Office.

How many US Supreme Court justices are on the Court today?

Currently, there are nine Supreme Court justices on the United States Supreme Court. The number of justices is set by Congress and has varied from five to 10. There have been nine justices since 1869. In 1937, Franklin Roosevelt attempted to add six more justices to the Supreme Court. He felt the court was obstructing much of his New Deal policies and adding more members who would agree with his views would help. This was termed the "Court Packing Plan." However, Congress did not agree and so the number remains at nine.
