It is hard to imagine a time when law was more important to
managers. The rapid growth of unregulated subprime mortgages
and financial derivatives fueled a real estate bubble from
2001 through 2006, during which time executive compensation
in the financial services companies soared. When the bubble
burst in 2007, many executives of these companies walked
away unscathed, leaving employees, stockholders, and taxpayers
holding the bag.

information central to the professional, ethical and legal requirements of being
a doctor. It covers a core curriculum for medical students who must obtain a

accessible starting point for busy doctors looking for answers to issues as they

Although the number of new infections among children has decreased
sharply over the past several years (as noted previously in this report),
greater efforts are needed to ensure that progress continues. Most cases
of HIV infection among infants and children stem from insufficient
information and counselling provision among women in regards
to HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive rights and the lack of adequate
antenatal care during pregnancy. Respondents consider all new cases to
be inexcusable given the broad prevention mechanisms

In the last decade of the twentieth century recordkeeping professions
(archivists, records and information managers) began to re-invent
themselves, largely, but not exclusively, in response to the change from
paper-based to electronic recordkeeping systems. This is evidenced by the
changing language of the recordkeeping professions, the recognition of
related interdisciplinary research and knowledge, and the re-evaluation of
recordkeeping theories and practices.

The practice of journalism as a profession raises many ethical issues. We are more
concerned with the nature and possible resolution of the issues that arise in the practice
than with the theoretical definition of a profession. The nature of professionalism is both
vague and flexible, as older professions like law and medicine change, and newer
occupations jostle for the status that professionalism brings, occupations like teaching,
social work, nursing, and even journalism.
The overlap between regulations on germ-line genetic
intervention and reproductive cloning is reﬂ ected
in Opinion 54 of The French National Consultative
Ethics Committee in 199717
where it cited Art.16-4 of
the civil code, which prohibits genetic modiﬁ cation of
descendants as an implicit ban on reproductive cloning.
Another example is the Law on Healthcare in Georgia18
which states ‘Human cloning through the use of genetic
engineering methods shall be prohibited’.

Over the last twenty years, asylum has become one of the central issues in
the politics of liberal democratic states. In 1993 the German Parliament
embarked upon the politically onerous task of amending the country’s
constitution, the Basic Law, in order to slow the arrival of asylum seekers
on to state territory.
