The Robe Don’t Run the Show Alone: 3 Legal Positions Other Than a Judge

In the courtroom, there is a balancing act that few understand the workings of. Like a car, the process of law doesn’t work well without all the parts. In the world of enforcing the rules, the judge usually gets the bulk of the attention since he/she is the one who ultimately decides the fate of the case at hand.

However, without the help of several others, his/her job would be impossible to do well. It is those positions that we will concentrate on. Considering a legal career? Read on for other available options. “The Robe” isn’t the only star in this show.


Arbitrators, Mediators, and Conciliators


When most people were growing up, when it came to fighting, our parents taught us a few things. The first thing was to try and avoid the prospect of a fight in the first place. You know. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you just couldn’t seem to shake the situation, the next step was to try to talk it out.


This was the arena before the battlefield. Many fights were won and lost here before the first punch was ever thrown, if it was ever thrown. In the legal system, arbitrators, mediators, and conciliators have the responsibility of attempting to help plaintiffs and defendants solve their dispute before it ever enters the courtroom.


Are you good at helping people see another person’s side of a problem and assisting them in finding a place of compromise that leaves everyone satisfied?  If so, you could, with a bachelor’s degree, you could bring home $60,000 a year for your trouble.
