Judicial

Lawyers serve as judges in the judicial branches of virtually every level of government across the country, including municipal and city courts; county legislative courts; state civil and criminal district, county, probate, and justice of the peace courts; federal district courts (including district and magistrate judges); and state and federal appellate courts. Additionally, lawyers often serve as administrative law judges in various settings.

Judges are elected in many states in partisan elections. Judges in other states are appointed and confirmed, similar to the process for Unites States federal district court and appellate court judges. In any event, most judges have significant practical experience before taking the bench. If you think you are interested in one day becoming a judge, you should consider applying for judicial internships, externships, and post-graduation judicial clerkships. You also should consider becoming active in local political party activities to begin to establish a political network.
