Alabama Judges

Alabama, like each of the 49 other states and the District of Columbia, has a judicial-conduct system that is the primary means by which ethical standards for and other conduct of judges are regulated. These judicial-conduct systems were instituted to ensure the integrity, independence, and impartiality of judges and the judicial system by

  • enforcing standards of judicial conduct on and off the bench;
  • assisting the judiciary in maintaining the necessary balance between independence and accountability;
  • providing an accessible forum for citizens’ complaints against judges;
  • creating a greater public awareness of what constitutes proper and improper judicial conduct; and
  • protecting judges from false, unfounded, and inaccurate accusations.
