Code of Ethics

Introduction: For your final paper we ask that you first outline your own Code of Ethics by following precisely the instructions below. In the second part of your paper we ask that you apply your Code of Ethics to determine the right thing to do in a case study from your present or future profession. Follow these instructions exactly and completely in writing your paper. Failure to do so will result in loss of points.
