In 1973, soon after its adoption by the American Bar Association, the Arkansas Supreme Court adopted the Code of Judicial Conduct. The Code has not been generally available in Arkansas. An easily accessible version of the Code is needed in view of the expansion of the judiciary, the original Arkansas options, the broadcasting revision, a 1982 modification in the judicial campaign requirements, and a developing body of case law on the disqualification of judges under the Code.For the Arkansas version that appears in this issue of the Law Review, I have omitted from the official ABA version the financial interests section that was rejected by the Arkansas Supreme Court and inserted the 1980 and 1982 amendments. To improve readibility, I have removed the Commentary that is interspersed in the text of the Code and set it out as footnote material.
