Porto Alegre (Brazil) -- Ethics and law

A group of law students from two universities in Porto Alegre, with the help of three professors, Alfredo Flores, Elton Somensi and Klaus Klopin, organized a series of work sessions on questions of ethics.

Taking Aristotle’s Nichomachean Ethics as their reference point, a weekly meeting was held at the Mirador Cultural Center for a debate on the thought of the great Greek philosopher.

The number of those taking part grew as the weeks went by and as more and more law students joined the discussion, as well as students from other fields.

The group has also attracted the interest of many university professors and postgraduate students.
