Following graduation, Jud earned a law degree at Georgetown Law School. He worked in public interest law in New York for 10 years, starting as a storefront lawyer on the Lower East Side. After serving as a clinical instructor at NYU’s Urban Law Clinic, he began a 45-year career at Seton Hall Law School, becoming a full professor and serving as associate dean for academic affairs. His teaching focus was on civil litigation, and he specialized in the impact of computer technology, the internet, and the phenomena of online social communities on the development and practice of law. He was twice named teacher of the year at Seton Hall. He had a strong interest in music and the theater and served on the board of directors of the New Jersey Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
