One of the unknown duties of judges requires them to educate the jury after they are selected. Jury members play an important part in the legal system and its the judges job to help them see different perspectives of the case and also help them apply the evidence to law. Judges also hear the verdict decided upon by jury members.

Judges must hold a variety of skills in their arsenal in order to fulfill all aspects of the position. They must be able to think on their feet and make tough decisions. Judges also must listen, write, and speak well. These skills will help them to find the answers and keep a courtroom calm under high pressure situations which also involve negotiation.

The core of a judges job is to interpret laws as they see them. This part of the occupation becomes extremely important when precedents have not been previously set. Judges must also ensure that all individuals and their cases are given an equal chance and all of their right established in the law are protected.

All types of federal judges are actually appointed by the president of the United States, not hired by some government official like many believe. After the presidential appointment they are then approved by the U.S. Senate. These individuals are usually recommended to to the president by senate and house members with similar political affiliations.

Federal budget cuts have led to small increases in the number of judge and magistrate positions in the United States. The possibility still remains that the need for these individuals will grow because of the increasing number of new issues the country is being faced with today. The average yearly pay for judges in local governments in the year of the 2010 was somewhere around $105,390.

Drew, you have a lot of basic, generic information here. Make sure your project has a focus, proves a thesis, provides a deeper analysis, and avoids a "book report" type of presentation. Perhaps you could analyze the ethical standards of court officials and analyze cases and decisions rather than just report on what a judge does.
