Judicial ethics is a surprisingly underexplored area and this volume marks an important point in this relatively new but commendably growing field of studies. The areas covered range from the metaethics of decision and how this impacts the judiciary to the ethical evaluation of the substance and procedure of a decision and codes of judicial conduct. Addressing each of these meanings and more, this collection brings together for the first time many, if not most, of the ’canons’ (or soon-to-be ’canons’) of modern judicial ethics scholarship. The previously published articles have created new interdisciplinary, historical, cultural and doctrinal understandings of judicial character, conduct, regulation and development, and bringing them together in one volume provides readers with the opportunity to review the field more readily and comprehensively.
