An Ethics Guide for Judges & Their Families

The Guide explores the code of judicial conduct restrictions that affect a judge as a member of a family and the guidance the rules give to family members. It lists examples of permitted and prohibited conduct in areas such as misuse of office, hiring or appointing family members, disqualification, acting as an attorney for family members, gifts, financial and fiduciary activities, civic activities, and political conduct. The related Discussion Guide contains materials a judicial spouse or other leader can use to plan a program on ethics and related topics to a meeting of judges and their spouses and other family members.
