Ethics Standards

FROM THE PREAMBLE: "The National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks, mindful that the character and conduct of its members should never be objects of indifference, and that declared ethical standards should become habits of life, adopts these principles which should govern the personal practice of appellate court clerks. The administration of justice requires appellate court clerks to adhere to the highest ideals of personal and official conduct."
