Lawyers as a cultural moral compass


"Relativity applies to physics, not ethics"
Albert Einstein

At first glance, many may agree. But what if you work in an organisation that could be deemed 'unethical' or where ethical 'fading' may be happening? Is it possible for individual's ethics to be framed by the company they work for (and not just by the company they keep)? 

This session looks at how lawyers can best use their internal moral compass to guide their employer into making the right ethical choices, whatever their industry. 

We will consider:

  • Why lawyers are often best placed to steer a business ethically
  • The courage required to make ethical decisions
  • How cultivating an ethical environment can create cultural and financial benefits for your organisation. 

After all, the right thing to do should be the only thing to do.
