Cooley Law School Associate Dean Joan Vestrand spoke at the U.S. Coast Guard’s 24th annual Ethics ForumMarch 22 at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn. Vestrand gave a presentation entitled “Why Ethics Matter: Branding for Success” to several different groups of cadets. This is the fourth year in a row that she has been invited to speak at the Forum.
The U.S. Coast Guard Academy's Ethics Forum provides the Corps of Cadets with a full day of lectures, panels and small group dialogues on the topic of ethical situations in the Coast Guard and beyond. As future officers, cadets are schooled in the concepts of integrity and strength of character, but this annual event allows for an immersion in thought-provoking discussions led by experts in a variety of disciplines. The Forum offers cadets the opportunity to engage in open and meaningful discourse on ethical challenges in areas such as academia, broadcasting, business, engineering, environment, finance, government, journalism, leadership, medicine, military, sports, terror management and water resource management.
