Chapter Summary

Procedural remedies play an important role in the system of procedural independence and impartiality of judges when carrying out justice. This means that the standards that procedural law regulates should provide an objective, impartial and independent review of court proceedings. This chapter looks more closely at the matters of the legal procedure of recusing judges, and also some aspects of ensuring judicial independence when rendering decisions. The process of recusing a judge in the procedural legislation of the Russian Federation lacks general regulations. A single process for deciding to recuse a judge is not embodied in procedural legislation. An important procedural guarantee of a judge's independence is restricting the recusal of a judge from a case. Procedural norms intended to provide judicial independence when reviewing a case and rendering a decision play an important role in the system of guaranteeing legal independence.
