Judges are expected not simply to decide the law but to exemplify it. In the face of increasing public scrutiny and a welter of new decisions, even the best-intentioned judges can find themselves at a loss. Here is the authoritative, practical guidance you need to ensure judicial activities are irreproachable.
Now in its sixth edition, Judicial Conduct and Ethics has established its reputation as the nation's most definitive guide to the conduct of federal, state, and local judges. The new edition, which keeps pace with recent developments in this fast-evolving field, builds on this tradition.
Setting the stage with an illuminating discussion of the use of power, Judicial Conduct and Ethics addresses the complete spectrum of judicial conduct, including uses and abuses of judicial power, judicial demeanor, disqualification, ex parte communications, case management, financial activities and disclosure, civic and charitable activities, personal conduct, political activities, civil and criminal liability, methods of discipline and removal, and disability and retirement. The book analyzes conduct that will subject judges to discipline under applicable codes of judicial conduct, and offers insights and advice on best practices.
Some of the substantial new material added to this edition include a new section on international judicial ethics and an updated appendix that enables readers to search the work with reference to rules from the 2007 ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct. Areas that have been substantially revised or expanded include:
• The Appearance of Impropriety
• Regulation of Political Activities in Judicial Elections in light of the U. S. Supreme Court’s decision in Florida Bar v. Williams-Yulee
• Personal Conduct and Social Media
