    Abstract

    “Ethical Practice in the Forensic Sciences” is both the theme for the AAFS convention in New York City in February 1997 and the focus of considerable media concern about our profession. It is common for discussions about professional ethics to be more notable for heat than for light. Everyone tends to be certain of his/her own ethical probity, and to feel certain that he/she needs minimal or no further formal training in ethics. Nevertheless, conceptual clarity and sound reasoning are often lacking in ethical discourse. This will provide a brief introduction to thinking more clearly about the subject.
