What is the average yearly salary of a judge?
You really should be more specific. Salary ranges for a judge vary from country to country, state to state, even county to county. In addition there are various types of judges from low level courts through the supreme courts and federal courts. A judge is typically well paid for their location but that range is very dependant on many factors. Local judges may range from $30,000-$90,000. Federal judges often range from $100,000 up to $200,000. Television show judges with their own show make even more.
