New York Law Journal has this article on the new proposed model code for administrative law judges. It was developed by the New York State Bar Association, and submitted to the Legislature and state agencies for adoption. The model code consists of five canons
designed to serve as ethical signposts for some 2,000 administrative law judges employed directly by state agencies or working for them on a contract basis in the same way that New York’s Code of Judicial Conduct guides the conduct of judges or the Rules of Professional Conduct defines ethical professional behavior by attorneys.
The NYSBA Subcommittee on the Administrative Law Judiciary developed the proposed model code over the past two years.
