The study tackled the code of conduct for judges in a number of States and international and regional documents, with particular emphasis on the Bangalore Principles, instruments of Riyadh and Sharjah and conduct rules in both France and Palestine. The researcher made a comparison amongst all these sources in order to form a comprehensive perception of all these rules in terms of nature, sources, purposes, and the sanctions resulting from their violation. The researcher also analyzed these rules in a detailed framework, focusing on the content of each principle or rule of conduct in both theory and practice.
The study found that, despite its importance in strengthening the independence of the judiciary, is still under construction, and it lacked specificity and accuracy in both theoretical and practical levels. Such rules did not achieve their goals entirely. The study resulted to several useful findings on judicial conduct, which can be built upon in the future
