Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. What is the difference between the “letter of the law” and the “spirit of the law?” How do you know when the “spirit of the law” should override the “letter of the law?”
2. Can you describe a situation in which breaking the law or ignoring the law is, in fact, the best way to keep the law?
3. Can you imagine a legal system which does not allow such leniencies? What would that be like?
4. Did you ever have to do something that seemed “wrong” but nonetheless was the right thing to do?
