The Model Code of Judicial Conduct is intended to establish standards for ethical conduct of judges,provide guidance to judges and candidates for judicial office and provide structure for regulating conduct through disciplinary agencies. It consists of broad statements called Canons, which state overarching principles of judicial conduct, followed by enforceable black letter Rules, and Comments that provide both aspirational statements and guidance in interpreting and applying the Rules. It also includes a Preamble and Scope Section, a Terminology Section and an Application Section. Each chapter in the Annotated Model Code of Judicial Conduct includes a Section of the Code, including its Rules and Comments and a detailed discussion of its background, meaning, application and interpretation. The book includes citations to over 1,000 cases, hundreds of ethics opinions and numerous law review articles, making it a definitive examination of the current state of judicial ethics.
