If I were making up the rules, I would not allow lawyers to be judges. I would not allow anyone with a law degree, or some maximum number of hours of law school, to be a judge.

In the UK in the very lowest court this is exactly what we have. It is called a magistrates court and the magistrate is just a citizen of good standing who receives some very basic training


Don't magistrates sit in a panel of three ?
Even more fair minded.
