Most people do not spend much time thinking about the law, even though the law is all around them, all the time. As a society, we expect everyone to act in conformance with the law. Most people in society also expect people to act ethically. Note that for our purposes, unlawful behavior is generally also unethical.[1] But not all lawful behavior is ethical. There are many things individuals and companies may do that are in accordance with law, but that may well be considered by many to be unethical.[2] Unfortunately, we regularly and frequently see examples of unethical behavior in business.

The three primary purposes of this exercise are: 1) to encourage you to keep up with the world around you; and 2) to help you recognize just how much our society and your everyday life is regulated and controlled by law; and 3) to help you identify and reflect on some of the ethical challenges in society today.
