Judges 2

Judges 3 Judges are the referees of the courtrooms of modern-day chess. When it comes to Judges you have a lot of responsibilities. With responsibilities come a lot of different types of stress. How the judge deals with these responsibilities determines if they will be effective at their job or ineffective. The responsibilities do not pick who gets it. It is there from the bottom of the pole all the way up to the Supreme Court judge. To start with I will describe some of these responsibilities. As a judge there are lists of responsibilities that are very important. Some of these responsibilities are signing search and arrest warrants, deal with the arrest procedures through appellate rulings, set bail or remove it, preside over preliminary hearings, hear pre-trial motions, approve plea bargains. This is just half of the list. To continue on, a judge must also oversee jury selection, manage the day-to-day courtroom concerns, preside over trials, rule on objections during trials, serve as sentencing agent, and hear and decide appeals including request for post conviction relief.
