In this program, Peter Afrasiabi takes on a difficult topic: what standards govern bias by judges and if you believe your judge is biased against you or your client, what can and should you do about it? As you might expect, the answers to these questions involve thorny legal, tactical and ethical issues, and this program gives you the guidance you need should you come face-to-face with a judge whose fairness and impartiality reasonably might be questioned.
