Law Professor Looks at Lawyers’ Role in Elections

An ethics column by University of Tennessee College of Law Professor Judy Cornett ran in this month’s issue of DICTA, the Knoxville Bar Association’s monthly newsletter. In the piece, which appears on page 19, Cornett reminds lawyers of their ethical obligations regarding judges and judicial candidates. Her recommendations: don’t lie about judges, defend judges who are unjustly criticized, and if you want to educate others about the importance of a fair and impartial judiciary contact the bar for an Informed Voters Project presentation.
