Judicial Ethics - Time for a SCOTUS code?

Supreme Court GW Paralegal


Did you know the justices of the United States Supreme Court have no code of ethics?

Unlike other judges and lawyers, they are not required to avoid impropriety or the appearance of impropriety. That means they can hear cases in which they or their family members have a financial, political or personal interest.

Join Professor Toni Marsh, JD, Director of the GW Paralegal Studies program, as we explore the history of ethics in the Supreme Court and discuss whether it is time to implement a code.
