    1. My main dilemma is whether or not to take the Judge’s suggestion and pose as Alex’s father. 2. It is unethical and against the law for me to pose as Alex’s parent for the express purpose of obtaining medical records that both myself and the judge have no legal right to possess. Even if I were to act upon the judge’s suggestion and find out that Alex had HIV, the evidence could not be used in court against the mother due to the manner in which it was obtained. Another dilemma is whether to report Judge Bolt for even suggesting such an impropriety as impersonating a minor’s parent to obtain medical records. With no court records to prove this suggestion was factual there is only my word against the judge’s and I would lose! 3. As the law clerk I would advise the judge to reconsider his suggestion. If he did withdraw his suggestion, and claim it was a joke, then there is no dilemma. if he continued to attempt to force me to break the law, then I must consider trying to transfer to another court and work for another judge. This could also end my career! 4. My first option is to contact the person who gave the court the report containing Alex’s confidential information, supposedly his probation officer, and have him order the HIV test. I could ask the police, who are holding Alex for a curfew violation, to attempt to find Alex’s father and persuade him to have his son tested for HIV. The only other option is to call the police anonymously and state that Alex is a health risk…

    Imagine a world of transparency. Each human would have full access to every minuscule detail of another person’s life, from looking up their medical issues online, to watching a live stream of every single move they make. It is terrifying to imagine a society in which nothing is kept personal, and as the inherent nature of technology continues to progress, this threat will only become more of a reality. Dave Eggers illustrates this pseudo-utopian world in his novel, The Circle, where his…

    “Power makes individuals corrupt” “Corruption is when people in positions of entrusted power abuse their power for their own personal gains [or to fulfill the agendas of the group they represent]” (Transparency International). Lord Acton, a nineteenth century historian, argued that power is the root cause of corruption. The more power one has, the more corrupt one is likely to become ("Biography of Lord Acton."). Although some commentators argue that there is no correlation between power and…

    Pope Francis stated in his apostolic exhortation that ethics has come to be viewed in a bad manner and that it is “counterproductive, too human, because it makes money and power relative.” There are numerous instances that prove his point and that there is an ethical dimension to the economic and social political problems in our society. Society has become corrupt, so money oriented and business owners have become so greedy that ethics is often overlooked or completely forgotten about. There…

    increase. Moreover, Manion proposes that figures on corruption are likely to underestimate its actual volume. She argues that the severity of corruption in China is captured by the story of the Anticorruption Bureau Chief, Luo Ji, who was fired in 1998 after being caught diverting embezzled funds (Manion 2004: 85); corruption, she argues, is even prominent among those who are tasked to resolve it. Another popular resource for analysing corruption is the in-depth research undertaken by…

    requirements and the fact that looking at corruption in the empirical sense moves it away from the issue of ethics thus over simplifying the issue as a “legal vulnerability” (Jos 1993, 360). The unique thing about Jos’ research in relations to the previously mentioned qualitative research is that he seeks to explore the operationalization of the constructs involved in defining corruption in order to bridge the gap between normative and empirical studies. On the contrary, Kilkon Ko and Ananya…
