I ask that you pay special attention to the discussion that occurs midway through the video and that pertains to the ethical dilemma of whether a law should break confidentiality to possibly save an innocent man from execution or should s/he keep confidences and do nothing to alert the authorities to the condemned man’s innocence.
In your essay (500 words minimum), please discuss what you would do if you were the defense attorney confronted with this situation. As fully as possible, explain why you would keep or break confidence. What are the major ethical and legal considerations that are driving your decision?
