Why do good attorneys and organizations act unethically?   The session will begin with a discussion of the classic Stanley Milgram punishment experiments, seeking to understand how they help explain unethical behavior.  The class then uses specific case studies to provide a foundation for an analysis regarding how the fostering of ethical diversity within organizations can prevent the slippery slopes that lead to administrative evil or unethical behavior.
