6161 unread replies.7171 replies.People sometimes confuse legality and morality, since (1) breaking the law is not always or necessarily immoral, and (2) just because an action is legal does not guarantee that it is morally right.

Without using the examples cited in Chapter 1, share an example of (1) and an example of (2) above. Explain your two choices.Comment on selections made by other students. Do you agree with their positions? Why do you think that the law and morality are sometimes different? Why can’t laws always be written to be moral?

4444 unread replies.5959 replies.In Idaho, a young doctor agreed to a 10-year, 50-mile radius in her employment contract. Upon leaving the employer’s chiropractor office after five years, she set up a new office, but only went 49.5 miles away, thinking that would satisfy the 50-mile radius requirement.

The employer did not agree and filed for an injunction (which is a court order to prevent the doctor’s actions) to stop the doctor from opening her office. The courts agreed with the employer. The employer was able to enforce the injunction and shut down the young doctor’s new office. The ensuing financial issues grew for the young doctor because she now had signed contracts for the building, equipment, and utilities, but was not able to practice in the location.

The 50-mile radius requirement would force the doctor to completely move from the town in which she grew up. The nearby towns are saturated with doctors and she would not be able to acquire many patients, if any, in those towns. She is now considering leaving medicine altogether.

As non-compete clauses have gained popularity, some state courts have moved to deem them invalid altogether, and other states have severely restricted their impact. The ultimate test that the courts have used is the reasonableness of such clauses. What are the various ethical considerations of the impact of the non-compete clause? Do you think that the non-compete clause in this example is reasonable insofar as the combination of distance and length of time? Argue the pros and cons of enforcing this particular clause as it is now written. Are there any professions in which a non-compete clause may be essential?

What is a just society? Which of the three theories of economic justice discussed in Chapter Three (utilitarian, libertarian, or Rawls’s theory) do you feel would best create such a society? Why have you selected this theory and rejected the others? If our society were to be structured to incorporate the theory that you selected, would there be any negative impacts on you or on those whom you care about? What would these be?

Following World War II, leading Nazi doctors were brought to justice before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. Twenty doctors were charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Nuremberg trial of the doctors revealed evidence of sadistic human experiments conducted at the Dachau, Auschwitz, Buchenwald, and Sachsenhausen concentration camps.

Since the Nuremberg trials, our society has had to confront the reality that Nazi doctors were guilty of premeditated murder that was masqueraded as research. Professional modern medicine has had little difficulty condemning the Nazi doctors as evil men. But what is being said of the continued use of the Nazi doctors’ medical research? Many scholars are now discovering that there are multiple references in reputable medical literature to Nazi experiments and republished works of former SS (elite corps of the Nazi Party) doctors. These studies and references frequently bear no disclaimer as to how the data were obtained. In recent years, several scientists who have sought to use the Nazi research have attracted attention, and this has stirred widespread soul searching about the social responsibility and potential abuses of science.

These incidents prompt a number of questions for the scientific community. Is it ever appropriate to use data as morally repugnant as that which was extracted from victims of Nazism? If so, under what circumstances would this be acceptable? If it is discovered that the Nazi doctors learned about the basic building blocks for a cure for cancer that would, if used as part of current and legitimate research, be the missing link that would save millions of lives, should this tainted data be used? If used, should limitations or conditions be placed on what can be done with a percentage of the profits that any drugs traced to this data would generate (e.g., requiring that the profits to be donated to the survivors of concentration camps)?

It seems reasonable and unproblematic to say that we may be loyal to other human beings because they are flesh and blood entities.But what about loyalty to a business? When we feel loyal to a corporation, is it the business for which we are expressing loyalty or are we actually being loyal to the people who are within that business? Should people be encouraged to or discouraged from feeling loyalty to companies? If the business actively encourages a sense of loyalty among its employees, does the business morally owe something more than a typical severance package if it must terminate a worker’s employment?

During their start-up days, many Inc. 500 CEOs tell half-truths to win over customers, while others tell outright lies.

Are some lies worse than others? Using the lies described in the article, which ones do you think are harmless to the public and helpful to the business? If a customer is misled by information, but is ultimately not harmed, does that make the lie acceptable? Is there an ethical difference between posturing and overt deception? Does it matter? Why or why not?

Does our capitalist system force entrepreneurs who are starting small businesses into a position where they can only succeed if they exaggerate and posture? If they have no track record and tell the truth about their size and experience, how can they compete with established businesses?

“In January 2007, a Los Angeles police disciplinary board ruled officer Steven Garcia was justified in shooting to death a 13-year-old boy who allegedly tried to back over Garcia with a stolen car after a chase two years ago. This finding outraged some in the community and contradicted the earlier finding of the civilian Police Commission, which said the officer should face discipline for the shooting of Devin Brown. Exacerbating this outrage, according to city leaders who spoke out after the case, was that the disciplinary board’s hearing was conducted entirely in secret.” (Winegar, N.Hidden Behind a Badge?)

The recent California court case ofCopley Press v. County of San Diego curtailed media access to documents generated in police misconduct hearings. In that case, the court stated, “Copley insists that ‘public scrutiny of disciplined officers is vital to prevent the arbitrary exercise of official power by those who oversee law enforcement and to foster public confidence in the system, especially given the widespread concern about America’s serious police misconduct problems.’ There are, of course, competing policy considerations that may favor confidentiality, such as protecting complainants and witnesses against recrimination or retaliation, protecting peace officers from publication of frivolous or unwarranted charges, and maintaining confidence in law enforcement agencies by avoiding premature disclosure of groundless claims of police misconduct.”

Which is more important, the privacy of the police officer or the community’s desire to know who is patrolling their neighborhoods?

Reporter Judith Miller was released from jail after 85 days, because she had received a voluntary, direct waiver from her source, I.Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Jr., releasing her from her promise of confidentiality and enabling her to testify in the federal investigation of a CIA agent’s leaked identity. Many reporters are concerned that this use of waivers will undermine the profession. Bob Zelnick, chair of Boston University’s journalism department and a former ABC News correspondent, calls a request for a waiver “a functional betrayal of the source and the relationship, and I am disheartened to see how many of my colleagues have rushed to this little life preserver at the expense of their sources.”

Myron Farber is a formerNew York Times reporter who served 40 days in jail in 1978 for refusing to turn over his interview notes about a New Jersey physician accused of murdering his patients. In most instances, Farber says, reporters are trying to persuade people to share information, not highly motivated whistle-blowers, but reluctant citizens who might know something pertinent to their stories. “Many times you don’t even know what sources are going to say,” he says. “You’re a professional journalist; it’s your responsibility to figure out whether this person knows something. If the person is adamant that they’re not going to talk to you except in confidence, you have to make a decision—either it’s in confidence, or you’ve got to live without the information. You can’t then go back and say later on, ‘That information wasn’t as good as I thought it was,’ or ‘That information is involved in a legal situation, and I’ve got to extricate myself,’ or ‘I can’t afford to go to jail for one reason or another,’ or ‘My paper doesn’t want me to go to jail.’ That is ethically wrong, and it is completely impractical in the real world” (Smolkin, R. Waivering,American Journalism Review, February/March 2006).

Do you think that sources may feel coerced if a journalist, facing jail, asks them for a waiver?

Is this a pragmatic way to stay out of jail or a breach of journalistic ethics that could pose big problems for the profession?

A study published in 2004 by Alan J. Ziobrowski of Georgia State University found that U.S. senators, on average, beat the market by 12% a year. “The results clearly support the notion that members of the Senate trade with a substantial informational advantage over ordinary investors,” Ziobrowski stated, noting that the law does not prohibit senators from trading stock on the basis of information acquired in the course of their work.

Wall Street brokerages, moreover, have made billions in recent years by using complex software to foretell what their large customers, like mutual and pension funds, will be doing before they do it, based on their knowledge of the customers’ past behavior.

If the authorities turn a blind eye to public officials who profit from non-public information and corporate insiders who make money based on what they learn behind the boardroom doors, and if it is legal for big trading houses to take advantage of what they know about their customers’ trading habits, what is the value of insider trading law?

Some have argued that seeking to benefit through ingenuity and shrewdness is good business, and good business is as important a professional trait as good medicine, good law, good education, and so forth. Do you agree?

“Wooden” is a large factory in Littlebury. Littlebury is a small town with a population of approximately 1,200 people. Wooden is the largest employer in the town. In Littlebury, everyone knows each other, as they are either related or friends. Wooden specializes in creating wooden objects from shaving and shaping logs. The factory takes in approximately 1,000 logs a day and operates on a 24/7 schedule. The activity generates an enormous amount of wood dust. There is dust at least an inch thick on all of the equipment, flat surfaces and ceiling rafters. There are some areas in which the dust could be as much as three inches thick.

Wood dust is a combustible material and, given the right circumstances (ignition source, amount of dust, etc.), can be explosive.Also, inhaling fine wood dust can create respiratory illnesses.

Employees have complained over the years about the dust, but the employer still has not created a method to frequently clean the factory. One day Karen, a co-worker, tells you that while she was operating her machine she noticed three quick sparks in the air near her work station. Karen informed her Section Manager about this incident, but the response was that she shouldn’t worry about it. She is now scared that the factory may explode at any moment.


Your Assignment

You are an employee at this factory. You have worked there for over 10 years and know everyone from the owner to the co-workers.This situation has you nervous as well, but you don’t know what to do because you do not want to get anyone in trouble. You decide to speak with several people at the factory. Based upon their responses (listed below), answer the following questions:

  1. 1.Would you report this situation to anyone else? If so, who and why?
  2. 2.If you choose not to report the situation, explain your decision.
  3. 3.What are the possible consequences if you were to report this situation?
  4. 4.What are the possible consequences if you fail to report the workplace condition?
  5. 5.Let’s assume that you have reported the workplace condition.Is this whistleblowing? If so, would it be morally justified in this situation?


Jason Rhine, Safety Coordinator

“There is no way an explosion could occur. Everyone knows that wood dust is not explosive. Karen probably just saw some type of light reflection. Look, in order to ease your mind, I will schedule a major clean up of the facility next month. Just sit tight.”

Alex Riveria, Area Manager

“Do not make any trouble. A major clean-up of the entire facility will stop production for at least two days. Just clean your work area. I have been in this industry for over 30 years, I know a dangerous situation when I see it. Let the experts handle this.”

Karen Parse, Co-Worker

Please contact OSHA. You can make a complaint and they will investigate and handle it. I can’t call since I was just hired two weeks ago. I cannot make any waves, but you have been here long enough. You won’t have any problems. I am so scared because a plant back in my hometown exploded about two months ago because of wood dust. This is really dangerous!

Tony Lord, Owner

“You cannot prove that there is an explosion hazard here. You should only come to me when you know definitely that there is a safety issue. I will consider anything else as slander against me and my company. I do not take too well to disloyal employees.”


You will read the case summary, accompanying character descriptions and answer the questions. You should also write a two (2) page Word Document (.docx) outlining the rationale for your answers. The assignment must conform to APA formatting standards.You should include principles that you have learned so far in this course. Be sure to provide adequate information to support your decision.

DeVry LAWS 420 Week 6 Course Project Latest


The purpose of the LAWS420 Course Project is to provide you with a practical view of the ethical dilemmas that you are likely to encounter as you pursue your chosen career path. Whether you become a health professional, an accountant, an attorney, a small business owner, or a software engineer, you will be faced with ethical questions, both large and small, on a regular basis. With this assignment, you have an opportunity to begin to consider what you will do when you are faced with these issues. This assignment is due in Week 6 and is to be submitted to the course.

Begin this assignment by selecting a profession, preferably one in which you currently work or one in which you plan to pursue in the future. If your career track is one that leads you to become an entrepreneur, a small business owner, or a manager in a large corporation, please include an explanation of that business in which you now work or anticipate working in the future.

If it is a profession, describe what makes it a profession (this would include required education, licensing, organizational membership, continuing education, etc.). Locate the licensing regulations and ethical codes and standards of conduct that apply to this profession.Determine how these are enforced for this profession.

If it is a business that is licensed by the government and/or regulated by a trade or business organization (whether mandatory or voluntary), describe the ethical standards that are found in these licensing regulations and business organizations. Feel free to use such groups as the Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce to discover ethical guidelines that might apply to your business.

As with the professions, locate the licensing regulations (if any), codes, and/or standards, and determine how these are enforced.

Provide a list of four current ethical dilemmas facing this career field. These can arise from changing technology, an ongoing and unresolved ethical dilemma, or one based on a controversial business or professional policy or practice. For each current ethical dilemma, provide a different article that addresses the dilemma. Use the DeVry University Library online at (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to research and select your articles (consider EBSCOhost or LEXIS-NEXIS). Do not use Google or other non-academic search engines or articles from sources such as Wikipedia.

The body of your paper will be divided into four sections; one section for each of the four ethical dilemmas. Each section will begin with one paragraph devoted to a description of one of the ethical dilemmas. After this description, explain how you would go about deciding what you should do, supporting your position using (1)one or more theories of ethics found in our textbook and (2) a minimum of one article from your research.

Be sure to review the Guidelines section for specifics about the length, style, and format requirements of this Course Project paper.

This assignment is worth 19% of your final grade.

Be sure to review this APA tutorial as proper citations are expected on all course work.

APA Guidelines for Citing Sources This video will give you a quick introduction to APA guidelines for citing sources. Highlights include purposes of citing, guidelines and examples of how to cite sources in text and at the end of a paper, and how to format a reference list or an entire paper.



The body of the report must be 4–6 pages in length, 12-point font, and double spaced. The paper must include a cover page, table of contents, introduction, the body of the report, summary or conclusion, and works cited.

Even though this is not a scientific-type writing assignment and is mostly creative in nature, references are still very important. You must have a minimum of one different academic source for each ethical dilemma. Any outside references must be cited (anonymous authors or web pages are not acceptable). These should be listed on the last page, titled references.

APA format and citations are required, including appropriate in-text citations.

Scenario Summary—Is Affirmative Action at Work?

Smulderbaum, Hammers & Stein is a 100-year-old law firm specializing in corporate law. The firm employs over 100 attorneys; among them are 15 junior partners and five senior partners. All of the partners are white men. Out of the 80 remaining attorneys at the firm, only 20 are female and there is one Asian-American male. The firm is now searching for another associate attorney.Recently, the senior partners have been very vocal about adding more diversity to the firm. Your best friend, Richard (a white male), just graduated at the top of his class from Yale Law School. He received his MBA from Harvard before attending Yale and interned at several other law firms while he was in law school. He also speaks three languages.

You recommend Richard to a senior partner, who is ecstatic about having someone of his caliber join the firm. Richard is interviewed, along with other candidates, and the senior partner tells you that everyone loves him. Two weeks later, Susan (a black woman), is introduced to the firm as the new Associate.

Your Role/Assignment

You are an associate attorney at the firm. You want to complain about the hiring process because you suspect that Susan was hired only as a way to increase diversity. You strongly believe that Richard was overlooked only because he was white. Before you take action, you decide to speak with a couple of people in the law firm.

Based on their responses, decide what the proper course of action should be. Discuss your decision in this week’s discussion topic, Affirmative Action.

Samuel Thompson, Senior Partner

“Susan comes highly recommended and has been working in corporate transactions for almost 10 years. She will be an excellent fit in this firm.”

Thomas Cleveland, Junior Partner

“We desperately need some diversity in this firm. We have the reputation of being a bunch of stodgy, old, white men. In order to appeal to more clients, we have to change our image. Susan will help us do that.”

William Wilkins, Senior Partner

“Susan was editor of Columbia Law Review. She graduated magna cum laude and Order of the Coif. She has argued cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals and is licensed in three states. She will be a tremendous asset to this firm.”

Lindsey Kurtz, Junior Associate

“Everyone knows that Susan was hired because she’s black. How else would someone with a Harvard and Yale background AND who speaks three languages be overlooked? It is not fair!”

(TCO 1 & 2) Cynthia has really been going through extreme financial difficulties. She is a single mother of three and lost her job about six months ago. She received an eviction notice last week stating that she had 30 days to pay her back rent or else she would be evicted. She has been desperately searching for a job, but has been unsuccessful. One day, Cynthia was talking with her friend, Janet, who works at a big-time Fortune 500 corporation. Janet just so happened to mention during the conversation that the vice president at her job was looking for an administrative assistant. Cynthia immediately became excited and asked Janet for her help in getting the position. Janet told Cynthia that the job is very stressful and requires a certain level of organization and skill. Janet then told her that she did not believe that Cynthia was qualified for the job. Cynthia did not care and begged her to let her use Janet as a reference. Janet refused. Cynthia applied for the position anyway and forged a reference letter signed by Janet. Although she was nervous about doing it, she had three children to support, no income, and she was desperate. She knew that if she had Janet as a reference, she would definitely get the position. Janet was out of the country on business-related matters for three weeks. Cynthia used that time to apply for the position and schedule an interview. Based almost entirely upon “Janet’s” glowing recommendation, Cynthia got the job. She was able to stop the upcoming eviction.

Select a moral theory and explain whether Cynthia’s actions were right or wrong. In choosing a theory, be sure to include a definition and adequate information to support your answer.
