How Does a Judge Spend a Workday

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
To start, you first need to understand that there are different types of judges. The type of judge that someone is will be the determining factor for what they do all day. With so many different types of different judges, from traffic court judges to supreme court judges, to say exactly what every judge does could become a little too complicated. Luckily though there are some similar things that the lower court judges, the appellate court judges, and the Supreme Court judges do.
 
How Does A Judge Spend A Workday

Generally a person will become a lower court judge after working as an attorney. The training that is required is intense as there are a lot of things that will be handled in this type of courtroom. Hearings are normally set for a certain time of day and then there is another part of the day that is reserved strictly for draft orders. Uncontested docket hearings are scheduled for another part of the day as well. The rest of the time is spent researching and reviewing court case matters. All of the training in the world will not prepare someone for the intense amount of reading that is done by a judge in any courtroom.

The appellate court judges have to have special training, as their jobs are a lot harder. This type of judge will have all of the same responsibilities as the lower court judges but with additional responsibilities added on top of all of that. Training will have taught these judges that they also have to properly review the decisions of the lower court. Rulings will involve reversing and remanding an order placed by the lower court or agreeing with it.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
