Ethics on Trial

The Scottish Rite, Business Ethics Alliance, and Blue Cross Blue Shield are hosting Ethics on Trial on Thursday, April 16 at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, beginning at 5:00 p.m.

This year's journalism-themed drama pits a journalist with knowledge of terrorism versus the Ethical Shield Law, protecting his sources. Justice is in the balance!

Is this morally indefensible?

Join the trial where the plaintiff, defendant, judge, and you - the jury - determine the fate of the journalist. The debate is rousing, intellectually stimulating, and most definitely you will come to understand the complexity and entanglement of a true ethical dilemma.

Read the full story of this year's trial here
