Rule 1.0. Preamble.

   1.1. Purpose.

 As a unified body, independent from the judicial conduct structures of the Judicial Conduct Board and Court of Judicial Discipline, the Judicial Ethics Advisory Board (JEAB) is the designated and approved body to render advice and opinions regarding appropriate ethical conduct involving all judicial officers and candidates for all judicial offices who are subject to the Code of Judicial Conduct and/or the Rules Governing Standards of Conduct of Magisterial District Judges (collectively, the ‘‘Codes’’).1

   1.2. Mission Statement.

 To ensure the continued integrity and public trust of Pennsylvania’s judiciary, the Judicial Ethics Advisory Board shall, upon request, provide Advice and/or Opinions to any Judicial Officer or judicial candidate based on the Codes. The Advice and Opinions shall strive, where appropriate, to distinguish between mandatory and aspirational provisions of the Codes so as to guide the conduct of Judicial Officers as required under the Codes.
