DoD Ethics Counselor’s Deskbook

The Department of Defense SOCO Ethics Counselor’s Deskbook describes itself as “A hornbook and “how to” for Standards of Conduct in the Department of Defense.”  This description is a little misleading, since most of this valuable reference is just as valuable for ethics counselors in civilian agencies.

There’s a wealth of useful information here. One component is particularly timely: The recent strong Congressional interest in conferences means makes it advisable to be familiar with the manual and slide show on ethical issues involving conferences.

It looks like DoD SOCO obtained most or all of the manuals from the Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School, the Army’s excellent school for lawyers, but this just shows SOCO’s good judgment: If you are going to borrow, borrow from the best.
