this job because it seems to
difficult and i just don't really
want to do it. Best/Dislike I really liked that you can learn

an work in different areas if you
wanted to.
Some skills that judges need are
to always keep their cool, know
the law in and out, take no nonsense,
and be able to follow the law.
I don't like that you have to go
to school for 24 years. I also don't
like that if your in a room with a
criminal, something can go wrong.
