"Law permeates every aspect of society and is an amorphous 'creature' as it has historically been employed to both justify the status quo and engender social change. Law has served as a cloak of authority and power for both moral and immoral behavior. Law, ethics and morality are interrelated, but exist as separate concepts that sometimes align and other times are in tension with one another. Creating an awareness of the interplay of these concepts in our daily lives may not only be a fascinating and fun endeavor, but hopefully encourages a more thoughtful approach to the major issues of the day."
