Judicial Candidates Only Ethics Helpline at the State Bar of Michigan

The staff at the Bureau of Elections are unable to assist with questions concerning Michigan Code of Judicial Conduct (the Judicial Cannons).

Members should contact the SBM Ethics Helpline to receive an informal, advisory opinion from a staff attorney regarding an ethics issue pertaining to the inquirer's prospective conduct. This number is reserved for lawyers and judges only. Staff counsel will not advise on past conduct of the inquirer, the conduct of another attorney or judge, on questions of law, or hypotheticals. The opinions of staff counsel are non-binding and advisory only.
