Daniel’s Answer

A lawyer is someone who has went to law school and has passed the bar to be admitted as a lawyer. However, from there, the jobs vary widely. Some lawyers are litigation attorneys that go to court and represent their clients before the court, some are business lawyers who advise companies and draft contracts, some are tax lawyers who focus on clients tax issues, ect. The list goes on and on. A judge on the other hand is a representative of the court who listens to both sides of a case, and applying the law to the facts of the case presented to the judge, makes a decision in favor of one of the parties. In some jurisdictions judges are appointed to their position by the government, in other jurisdictions they are elected by popular vote. In some jurisdictions, to be a judge you don't have to be a lawyer. .

A lawyer normally takes a position and advocates for that position. Even if the lawyer is not involved in litigation, the lawyer advocates for the client. For example, the lawyer might draft a contract that favors his/her client.

A judge is an impartial person who helps to decide a matter based upon all of the facts presented by two or more lawyers. A judge applies the law to the facts to make a decision.
