If a judge on OSCAR asks for three references and three letters of recommendations, does the judge want both? Do the professors/employers who write the letters of recommendation need to be different from the people I use for the references?

Yes, it seems like the judge wants both three references and three letters of recommendation. It's up to you to provide the requested amount for each. You might be able to use your employers or professors who write letters of recommendation as references as well, but the judge might want different information from each.

For example, a reference might be someone who can speak to your character or personal qualities, while a letter of recommendation might focus more on your academic or professional achievements and abilities. It's wise to ask the judge what they expect from each type of suggestion, so you can pick out appropriate references and people to write letters for you.
