Best Answer

There are no constitutional requirements for becoming a federal judge, other than being nominated by the President and approved by a simple majority vote of the Senate.

The President typically follows selection criteria established by the American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary, but is not required to do so.

What is the qualification share as per section 172?

I'm unsure which jurisdiction you're asking about, but in my experience, a share qualification is a provision in a company's articles that requires directors to personally acquire a particular number of shares. In Singapore, for instance, if the articles specify a share qualification for directors, the director must satisfy the qualification within 2 months (or less time if the articles so specify).
