The chief contribution of Thomas Aquinas to the problems of conscience is his idea that one must act in accordance with one's conscience. ,,15 This requirement is fundamental when approaching the ethical aspects ofj}ldicial activities.

In fact the judgements of conscience are much more spontaneous, habitual or impulsive than the result of a conscious application of the natural law to the particular situations.
