Session Info:

Ethics & Law: One informs the other

Every field is beholden to regulations, and every professional organization expects its members to behave ethically... but which comes first? Which informs our decision making process? Does our law reflect our ethics, or vice versa?

 This will be an engaging, participatory session on Law and Ethics. We'll discuss some landmark cases and interesting scenarios ---from cannibalism to self-driving cars--- and all attendees will leave with a better sense of how they reach a decision on what is "right" or "wrong."
