Ethics IV



Ethics IV – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Lovetere v. Cole, Connecticut 2008. This letter once again utilizes the NSPS “Surveyor’s Creed and Canons” as a barometer by which to measure the actions of the parties in the case. Is it ethical to help a client build a bogus boundary dispute case against his neighbors? If it is, then shouldn’t the professionals who helped build that case stand behind their work and testify in court on their client’s behalf? What is the cost of the modern-day boundary dispute case? Do these issues create ethical concerns? Read the case and decide for yourself. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 12 pages. This 14-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.

OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
