Are judges just as liberal as lawyers?

Lawyers, as a profession, generally lean toward the left politically. But do judges?

A recent study (by a Harvard Prof, home of liberals typically), published here, says judges are more conservative.

From the article (ABA journal):
Among lawyers, the most liberal leaning are government lawyers, followed by law professors, public defenders, female lawyers, lawyers from the top 14 law schools, lawyers at large law firms, partners at firms and prosecutors, according to a chart of the findings in the New York Times. The least liberal leaning lawyers (though still liberal) are lawyers not from the top 100 law schools, male lawyers, and lawyers from the top 15 to 100 law schools.
