The whole point originally of having a judge was to have someone well trained and capable in the Law, whilst all other people were "all" supposed to learn too (People could then see more readily if "any one" was perverting it) then the whole of that society would live in more harmony and encourage other societies to do likewise when they saw the benefits of it compared to their mad and corrupt way of society.
But they started to pervert it (the Law) for their own gain. Then really it was then superseded by no judges etc, as the right was taken away from them, and all people were to learn and judge for themselves in the Law (and being shown by example by someone very famous). But this didn't suit the Judges Rabbis priests politicians, so the whole tradition of Judges etc continued for thousands of years and hence all the corruption, lies, misrepresentation and wars, etc etc.
There is also a "sign" in that too
