How to become a Judge

The process of becoming a judge depends on a number of factors, particularly the level of judicial standing. For example, arbitrators will have different requirements to magistrates and magistrates will have different requirements to federal judges. The minimum requirements for the position of judge are a bachelor's degree accompanied by work experience. Most judges on ahigher level hold law degrees.
