Consider and discuss a number of hypothetical cases to identify the competing principles and challenge the application of ethics and logic which inform your decision making, then deliver and defend your resolution, followed by responses from the Chief Justice.

This seminar will assist you in adopting a structured approach to decision-making on ethical issues, and hopefully influence your current thinking in that context.
