I am not an ethicist. Thus, unlike the New York Times column, I do not purport to know the answers. I will post my own as well as those submitted. From time to time I may say what I think but this Blog is primarily for the contributions of others.

What's a Student to Do?

Dear Law School Ethicist:

I am not sure this is an ethical issue exactly but it has something to do with fairness. At my my school we are divided into 4 first year sections. In one course we all take exactly the same exam.  I  recieved a raw score of 38 on the exam and received a B+ for a grade. My friend in another section also scored a 38 and received an A. This seems wrong to me. I seems like my grade was determined by the section I was assigned to and not my actual performance on the exam.  Shouldn't the teachers somehow make sure this does not happen?
