Who Do Judges Turn To?

Most judges make their decisions by themselves. This usually comes from hours of thinking in a large room with the sun beating on their face. However, what happens when a judge cannot make a decision? What happens when a judge is afraid to make a decision? Many people think judges will call old teachers, classmates, or even close family members. 

While this may be slightly true, judges rely on lawmakers, lawyers, and anyone who writes about the law on a daily basis. This is how judges continue to make decisions based on the law and not out of their emotions.

A recent studied proved that all judges, when faced with a tough decision, will contact a lawmaker or a lawyer. This in fact is why many lawyers become judges. By the questions they receive from judges, they will know what the job entails on a daily basis. 

Lawmakers also like the fact that judges come to them. This helps them observe the law and how it should be changed. This also helps them see how the public is changing on a daily basis. Many laws, which are in existence today, are in existence because a judge contacted a lawyer with a question. 

Every single day new laws are being created and old laws are being torn down. In the same effect, new judges are being elected and old judges are leaving office. This is going to create an entire new system that will be modernized to the highest degree. This change has already affected many people.
