Reporter's Notes to the Model Code of Judicial Conduct (edited by Charles G. Geyh and W. William Hodes)
This is an inside look at the analysis and decisions that were made by the Joint Commission to Evaluate the Model Code of Judicial Conduct in framing its revisions to the text of the Model Code of Judicial Conduct-- for legal scholars interested in the thinking behind language changes made to the Model Code in 2007. 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 with specific rules set forth in Sections under each Canon, a Terminology Section, an Application Section and Commentary. The text of the Canons and the Sections, including the Terminology and Application Sections, is authoritative.
