Business and professional schools often include ethics instruction, and
graduating students are often idealistic about their ethics. But this can change to ethical
numbness. The paper examines five causes of ethical numbness among lawyers in the
Asia and South Pacific region. How can we counteract this numbness, and maintain a
strong sense of ethics among legal professionals? The paper identifies five strategies
which are employed across the region to maintain the early ideals. (The paper was
presented at the Eighth Annual International Business Ethics Conference; “Rule of Law
and International Business Ethics Conference”; 21-22 October 2011: University of
International Business and Economics, Beijing.)
