Task #1 ( Moral & Ethical Dilemmas)

Today you are going to be addressing ethical and moral dilemmas. While you are in this law course you need to consider what are your own morals and ethics are. Ethics and morals relate to “right” and “wrong” conduct. While they are sometimes used interchangeably, they are different: ethics refer to rules provided by an external source, e.g., codes of conduct in workplaces or principles in religions. Morals refer to an individual’s own principles regarding right and wrong.
