Join Michael Hoffner, Managing Partner and Janice Snyder, Partner on Thursday, October 28 as they address the question of legal versus ethical within the context of the AICPA Code of Conduct.

This webinar will highlight 2 case studies in which the decisions made and actions taken were legal, but were not ethical.

Join us for an engaging conversation which will conclude with a framework for evaluating legal versus ethical decisions.

Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Challenge some thought processes regarding activities that are legal and follow all of the accounting rules, but do they follow the principle of the rule?
  • Evaluate whether a loophole is simply taking advantage of smart strategies or purposefully circumventing the truth.
  • Be given a framework for evaluating legal versus ethical decisions.
