Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the three core values of judicial ethics: independence, impartiality, and diligence. Independence addresses the external forms of influence on adjudication, including inducements, pressures, threats, and direct or indirect interference with the decision-making process. Impartiality concerns the internal predispositions of the adjudicator with respect to the matter in dispute, the adjudicator’s relationship to the parties, and the parties’ positions. Diligence requires attendance, attention, and preparation in each individual case.

Keywords: adjudication, judicial ethics, independence, impartiality, diligence
