In court, attorneys must be aware of the many factors that can determine the outcome of a case. They must know the law, communicate with clients, and work with the most important individual in the room, the judge. In this presentation, San Diego Superior Court Judge Matthew Braner will talk about some famously bad judges and look at not only the effects they produced on their society, but also in some cases how they were products of that society.

He was appointed to the San Diego Superior Court bench in 2014.
