    Wisconsin Supreme Court seeks volunteers to serve on committee to study Code of Judicial Conduct

    The Wisconsin Supreme Court seeks lawyers and nonlawyers for a new committee to study the Wisconsin Code of Judicial Conduct in light of the American Bar Association's 2007 revision of its Model Code of Judicial Conduct, other proposals for modification, and developing case law.

    The 2007 Model Code was the ABA's first comprehensive revision of its Code of Judicial Conduct since 1990, and it was the culmination of a three-and-one-half year effort. The current Wisconsin Code of Judicial Conduct (Chapter 60 of the Supreme Court Rules) was last amended by the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Oct. 29, 2004, following study and debate by a commission headed by Judge Thomas E. Fairchild.

    Lawyers and nonlawyers interested in serving on the new committee should send a letter and resume by Nov. 28, 2008, to: David Schanker, Clerk of the Supreme Court, P.O. Box 1688, Madison, WI 53701-1688, or by email to David.Schanker@wicourts.gov. Lawyers are invited to recommend nonlawyers who may be willing to serve on the committee.
