A Question of Ethics Conversation: Summer 2022 Edition of the Court Manager
NACM has made a commitment to the values of providing equal justice regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or identity, disability, or social economic status. What is the court’s ethical obligation, particularly when it comes to implementing court operations? This episode was a recorded conversation held immediately after the Ethics Subcommittees’ Conference Call held on March 24, 2022.
The questions the group explored include:
· Do courts have an ethical obligation to implement policies and procedures that ensure the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are applied to court processes?
· Can a court apply diversity, equity, and inclusion to assessing fines, costs, and fees? if so, how does one go about doing that?
The ethical Canons from the NACM Model Code for Court Professionals referenced during the conversation include:
Canon 1.1: Performing Court Duties
A court professional faithfully carries out all appropriately assigned duties, striving at all times to perform the work diligently, efficiently, equitably, thoroughly, courteously, honestly, openly, and within the scope of the court professional’s authority.
Canon 1.3: Fairness
The court professional makes the court accessible and conducts his or her work without bias or prejudice.
Canon 1.4 Respect for Others
A court professional treats litigants, co-workers, and all others interacting with the court with dignity, respect, and courtesy.
