ON DEMAND: Dyspeptic Judges: How To Avoid Judicial Wrath
Credit: 0 Credit Hours
Run Time: 77 Minutes
Although most judges are tolerant and patient, a few take delight flaunting their power. Even experienced lawyers may be daunted by the judge who carps at trivial mistakes and bullies the witness who struggles to testify. In this luncheon program, a panel of lawyers and judges discuss tactics for avoiding and coping with difficult judges and the ethical considerations that may arise from judicial misconduct. Beth Mellen Harrison, of the Legal Aid Society, will describe strategies for coping with irate judges. The Hon. Julie Becker, of the D.C. Superior Court, will add a judge’s perspective and advice on how to avoid aggravating judges. Amy Conway Hatcher, counsel to the Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, will talk about the ethical issues that arise when judges cross the line from behavior that is unbecoming to acts that are prohibited. There will be time for questions and answers after the speaker presentations.
