    There are 4 types of judges.

    Munsiff- magistrate,
    District Judge
    Judge of the high court'
    Judge of the supreme court.

    For becoming a Munsiff-Magistrate in some states there is no need of practice and in some state there should me minimum 5 years or practice.

    You can become a district judge by promotion from munsiff-magistrate or you can become a district judge by direct recruitment.

    For becoming a district judge through direct recruitment you should have minimum practice of 7 years.

    For direct recruitment the section is made by the high court of Kerala directly in some states or in some states it is conducted by the Public service commission of the respective states.

    Actually a law graduate (LLB) should under go three years of training as a lawyer after the graduation. But it won't open up for the designation of a judge, it is only the basic requirement. Inorder to become a judge a candidate should clear certain competitive exams like 'state judicial services exam'. The appointment of judges are done by the governor of the state in accordance with the rules set by the state judicial service commission. So any person after completing a degree course in law and after working as a lawyer for atleast three years stands a chance to be conferred the title of judge if he/she is found capable or if the eligibility criteria is fulfilled. All the best.

    Hi friend,

    ---> For becoming a judge first you should have LLB degree and if age is less than 25 years then you can appear directly for state government exam.
    ---> Please refer te point no.1 advocate can not promot as judge,but he/she can become public prosecutor after 7 years of practicing as an advocate.
    ---> LLB ( If any graduation ) or LLB ( Done after 12th ).
    ---> Its state government process initially after your experience you can prompted as central government employee.

    Finally you should learn the LLB degree for becoming a judge.

    Dear Aspirant,

    There are different types of judges which are listed below:-

    Miunsiff Magistrate

    District Judge

    Judge of the high court

    Judge of the supreme court.

    You have not mentioned where you are in practice whether you are in District or high court.

    In general 5 years of practice is required to be munsiff magistrate.Only practice is not enough to get promotion to the magistrate,you should have with good record.

    Munsiff judge is not promoted to district judge or practice with 10 years of pracice can be diectly promoted to the district judge.

    Practice of 20 years in high court can be promoted to the post of judge in high court.

    Thanks & good luck.
