Ethics corner

Assistant Attorney General Ed Carter, Supervisor of Financial Crimes Prosecutions for the Illinois Attorney General's office, recently published the article "Limits of Judicial Power: Does the Constitution Bar the Application of Some Ethics Rules to Executive Branch Attorneys?" in the Winter 2003 issue (Vol. 27, No. 2) of the Southern Illinois University Law Journal. In his article, Carter argues that certain rules of professional conduct may violate the Illinois and Federal Constitutions when applied to prosecutors and other attorneys who serve in the executive branch of government.
