Ethics and the Law will focus on the law and the ethical issues that arise when laws provide a certain outcome that may not be fair, ethical or necessarily the “right thing.”  During this session, we will analyze and debate some key Constitutional and State Court Cases that deal with ethical issues outside of the law. Specifically, discussion will include the ethics attorneys and paralegals face with the Attorney/Client Privilege, 4th Amendment’s Search and Seizure, 5th Amendment’s Due Process, 8th Amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishment, 1st Amendment’s Right to Free Speech, and the Right to Privacy.
