  • A summary review of judicial conduct rules (Canon 2), Pennsylvania’s judicial disciplinary system, and Pennsylvania recusal case law 
  • Recusal rules, press releases, and cases particular to campaign contributions 
  • The impact of Citizens United, Republican Party of Minnesota v White, and Caperton in Pennsylvania given the election of judges 
  • How lawyers should approach a recusal request when campaign contributions underlie the request
