Exploring This Job

Learn more about the work of judges by sitting in on a trial or two at your local or state courthouse. Try to focus mainly on the judge and the lawyer and take notes on what they do. Write down questions you have and terms or actions you do not understand. Then, talk to your school's career services office and ask for help in setting up a telephone or in-person interview with a judge. Prepare a list of questions in advance. Also, see if your school can help you participate in a job-shadowing program. Job shadowing programs allow you to follow a person in a certain career around for a day or two to get an idea of what goes on in a typical day. You may even be invited to help out with a few minor duties.
