Thomas, Hon J 

An examination of the rules of conduct and behaviour expected of Australian judges. This book is concerned with the conduct of judges, including magistrates and tribunal members. It discusses the temptations and travails to which judges are subject, exposes many of their misdeeds throughout the common law world, and sets out the high standards of conduct that they are expected to observe. It offers solutions to most of the ethical difficulties that might arise in the course of a judge's career. It illustrates these with practical examples aided by theoretical discussion. 

The book also examines the means by which the standards of conduct are enforced and whether current systems are capable of improvement. A must-read text for all members of the judiciary and the wider legal profession as well as academics, students and members of the public.
