This paper looks at the different written codes of conduct, established at the state and local level, which guide the professional conduct of individuals working in the U.S. legal system. The paper summarizes the written codes of conduct that govern the professional behavior of judges, lawyers, and policeman, and then looks at how effective these codes are at enforcing ethical behavior.

From the Paper:

"Professions connected with our legal system all have written codes of conduct to follow. While most codes of conduct are established at the state level, there are some exceptions. State police will have state-established codes of conduct, but individual jurisdictions have their own police forces with their own codes of conduct. Federal judges have a code of conduct governing them, but most lawyers follow codes of conduct established by the states in which they practice."
