Ethics and Law
Before we can begin to discuss the issues of ethics and law, you need to understand the difference between the two concepts.
Ethics is a term that considers what “should” be done, what is the “right” thing to do when there is uncertainty or question regarding principles or values. The law is a body of official rules of conduct, subject to interpretation and change over time.
