The Constitution sets no specific requirements. However, members of Congress, who often recommend potential nominees, and the Department of Justice, which reviews nominees' qualifications, have developed their own informal criteria. The President also typically expresses ideas about essential qualifications and personal characteristics publicly, particularly when considering nominees to the appellate courts.
There are no specific qualifications for the Judicial Branch in the Constitutions. However, it is assumed that the Judicial Branch members will be a US citizen and be a lawyer.
There are no qualifications to be elected to the judicial branch. Justices and judges are appointed.

Any properly constituted institution or professional body requires a recognised qualification for membership to that institution.
This question makes no sense. Do you mean what qualifications do they need? Some Illinois judges are elected and some are appointed. Those that are elected go up for retention periodically and people get to vote whether to retain them (none are ever not retained no matter how bad they may be).
Yes, presidents have nominated Supreme Court justices who were not judges many times. The Constitution gives no qualifications for Supreme Court judges, so the President can nominate anyone he wants. Today, nominating judges is the norm, but that was not so in the past.
There are really only two qualifications for judges. They must be very well informed about the law, and they must be of good moral character.Actually, they need to be able to READ the plain language of the law (Codes) and APPLY/ENFORCE them as written - not re-interpret or twist them. Moral character does not apply, especially when it comes to courts not of record. (typically family courts)Another answer:There are no qualifications. If someone runs and is elected - or if they are appointed - they are a judge. They do not even need a high school degree, nor does a criminal record bar them.
This process led the Court to conclude that Congress' power under Article I, Sec. 5 to judge the qualifications of its Members was limited to ascertaining.
No. The Constitution is silent about qualifications for federal judges. There are also no statutory (legal) requirements for appointment to the Judicial Branch; however, those in charge of the selection process have adopted stringent, informal criteria for selecting appropriate nominees.
