Ethics standards and expectations are provided by laws. “Rules and expectations of conduct, metrics by which to enforce those rules, and ways and means to settle disputes [are all set by law. ]” (Mallor, Barnes, Bowers, and Langvardt) From a functional point of view, the intricately woven web of laws governing this great land can be cumbersome and confusing.
