DESCRIPTION
Ethical conduct within professions -- whether it be police work, the law, commerce, nursing or some other area of professional activity -- has increasingly been a focus for community concern. Ethical questions have also come to preoccupy many individuals working in a professional capacity. The unit explores some of the issues at stake here including: the relation between private beliefs and commitments and professional duties and obligations; the limits of professional obligation; the relation between professional persons and others (whether they be clients, criminals or simply members of the public); the nature and role of professional codes or ethics. Emphasis is placed on the discussion of issues in relation to specific professional contexts and cases.
