Ms. Adwoa Ghartey-Tagoe Seymour, Esq., Assistant General Counsel, Cox Enterprises, Inc.

During this current climate, lawyers may wonder what judges are allowed to say and do. The Georgia Code of Judicial Conduct provides guardrails and guidelines for the activities in which judges may engage concerning the law, the legal system, and the administration of justice, provided that doing so will not interfere with the performance of their official duties or cast doubt on their capacity to impartially decide any issue. After the CLE, the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism hopes that lawyers will have a better understanding of how judges may engage in activities concerning the law, the legal system, and the administration of justice.
