Mexican Law/Judge and Lawyer Dual Roles ?.


Dear L.A.G.M‎

Can a Judge in Supreme Court or High Court or Session court also take a role of a lawyer in civil, criminal cases proceedings ?.

i.e. Once the Lawyer is elevated to a Judge Title, Can he/she also
practice as a Lawyer in court proceedings  ?.

i.e. Can he/she play a dual role of both Judge as well as a Lawyer
in certain court cases ?.

Examples :

1. Some court cases proceeding he/she is the Judge.

2. Some court cases proceeding he/she practices as a Lawyer for the Plaintiff or Defendant.

Does the Law allows him/her to play dual role of Judge as well as a Lawyer once he/she is elevated to Judge Title ?.

Note : Judge and Lawyer dual role not in the same court case proceeding, but different court cases.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar


Under Mexican Law, yes, is possible.

Is not possible in a same case, but is possible take both roles in different cases.

As a Lawyer, I'm not agree with that because some Judges take advantage about that posibility.

But, in different Court cases, yes, he or she can.

Any doubt, let me know it please.

Thank you very much for visiting me at
