If only I had five years experience (and a law degree)

PG's post on the Liberian law fellow position reminded me of this job posting I came across for an Associate Supreme Court Justice in Palau.

Associate Justice Supreme Court of Palau

Description: The Supreme Court of the Republic of Palau is seeking an Associate Justice to preside over trial and appellate proceedings. Palau, a small tropical island nation in Micronesia, is renowned for its unspoiled natural beauty and unique marine life. Until 1994 when it achieved independence, Palau was a United Nations Trust Territory under U.S. Administration: its legal system continues to borrow from U.S. common law while also recognizing local customs and traditions.

Qualifications: The Supreme Court is seeking individuals with a sense of adventure, an acute legal mind, and a commitment to the thoughtful development of Palauan law. At least five years quality legal experience is required, ten years preferred

Salary: $80,000 U.S. Dollars, housing, relocation costs, and a health insurance stipend

There was a story in the Wall Street Journal maybe ten years ago about a Cravath associate who answered such an ad and left the firm to become a Supreme Court Justice in Micronesia. It really sounded paradisiacal.

Both of these judicial job postings remind me of how I used to wish I'd gone on to get my masters in economics, as according to the Economist's classifieds, that's all I needed to run a small African country's banking system.
