The various types of 'law' are extensive and certainly too much for anybody to ever fully know. Even judges with decades of experience will lack full knowledge of all types of law; and accordingly, judges usually assigned to specific types of cases where the type of law involved is familiar. Even so, judges will routinely expect representatives for the parties to perform precedent research and then provide submissions and present argument based upon the findings of that research.

Accordingly, it is common that particular judges will hear civil law cases, other judges hear family law cases, and other judges hear criminal cases, etc. Similarly, legal practitioners will focus upon specific areas of law for the types of cases that are handled.
