Ann Arbor, MI – Is it ethical for banks to raise the credit lines of financially vulnerable customers? What are the moral limits of lawyer-client privilege in murder cases? Should protester anonymity be protected in all venues? What ethical considerations should be taken into account in emergency medical evacuations?

Ann Arbor, MI – For the past two years, the Ann Arbor deer cull has been the subject of much conversation among Ann Arborites — and this fall, it will be the subject of conversations across the country, too, as an ethics case for regional High School Ethics Bowls in twenty-five states outside Michigan.

Huron High School senior Miguel Cisneros’s case “The Cull”, written with help from fellow Huron students Ellie Makar-Limanov and Frank Seidl, has been picked for inclusion in the case study set featured in regional competitions leading up to the National High School Ethics Bowl.

Wayne Memorial High School Represents Michigan at the National High School Ethics Bowl, Voted By Peers to Receive Spirit Award

Ann Arbor, MI – After winning out over 12 other teams during the fourth-annual Michigan High School Ethics Bowl this January, Wayne Memorial High School’s “The Herd” traveled to North Carolina this weekend to compete in the National High School Ethics Bowl.

Saturday, April 22nd, is Earth Day. It is also a day when many will participate in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti rallies connected to the nationwide March for Science. A2Ethics members will join them. 

The Case Studies animate and drive the Bowl competition. They present real world ethical situations across professions--from medicine to the building trades--and topics, such as the responsible use of emerging technologies.

The Michigan Bowl showcases area high school students discussing real world ethical dilemmas before a panel of judges from 9 Michigan universities and colleges.
