Mandatory Conflict Screening Policy

This mandatory conflict-screening policy requires federal courts and judges to implement automated screening to help identify any financial conflicts of interest. This policy, adopted in 2006 by the Judicial Conference of the United States, is to be administered and directed by the circuit councils or by those courts not subject to a circuit council’s authority.
