What makes a good judge?

What makes a good judge?

Is it being impartial, unprejudiced and analytical?
Is it being old and experienced?
Is it the ability to use the practical wisdom Barry Schwartz mentions?
Is it concentrating on justice rather than on conflicts of interests?

Is it a combination? What do you think?

  • May 15 2013: Thank you for directing me to the related talks.

    I like a combination of the first 3 you listed: Unprejudiced, Able to see a long time constant integral of action and consequence, and practical wisdom.

    And from the talks directly: co-misery and what Mr. Stevenson said about a clear focus on appreciating the victim's changed perspective.

    Thank you again,
    Ed
