Moroccan judges gather to discuss adoption of a national ethics charter for the profession

Senior Moroccan judges meet to discuss the adoption of a Moroccan Judicial Ethics Charter.

04.05.2007 

More than forty judges and leading representatives of the Moroccan judge’s association, the Ministry of Justice, the Institut Supérieur de la Magistrature (ISM or Judicial Training Institute), the Conseil Supérieur de la Magistrature (CSM or High Judicial Council), and the Supreme Court met in Tangier on March 30, 2007, to discuss adopting a national ethics charter for the profession.  The colloquium was organized by the national judge’s association, the Amicale Hassaniya, with support from the ABA and MEPI.

The colloquium was the first-ever gathering of Moroccan judges to discuss adoption of a national judicial code or charter, as no such code currently exists.  The discussions at the Tangier colloquium resulted in a call for adoption of a professional ethics charter for Moroccan judges.
