Federal judges are appointed to lifetime tenure 'with good behavior.' Their salary cannot be diminished by Congress. They are appointed by the President.

There are actually few qualifications for a federal judge. A federal judge does not have to be a lawyer or even an education. The main qualification is a clean record and a history of honor.
