Center for Judicial Ethics

The Center for Judicial Ethics is a clearinghouse for information about judicial ethics and discipline.

The CJE provides research support for the conduct commissions that investigate complaints of judicial misconduct and tracks opinions issued by ethics advisory committees.  Each year, the CJE responds to hundreds of requests for information from reporters, judges, lawyers, and others.  The CJE publishes the Judicial Conduct Reporter and other resources on judicial ethics.  Every two years, the CJE presents the National College on Judicial Conduct and Ethics.  As a private organization, the CJE does not have the authority to discipline or investigate judges. The CJE became part of the NCSC in 2014, following the dissolution of the American Judicature Society.
