Ethical and legal issues are dealt with daily by school counselors (Bodenhorn, 2006; Moyer, Sullivan & Growcock, 2012). Despite the prevalence of these issues, few resources exist to assist these professionals when making ethical and legal decisions. In addition, a lack of supervision for school counselors and managing complexities inherent when working with minors creates a need for continuous training (Moyer, Sullivan, & Growcock, 2012; Remley & Herlihy, 2007). As a result, this article intends to assist school counselors in making proper ethical and legal decisions. Each ethical dilemma is described via a quiz format to further ethical knowledge and discussion. Real cases, as submitted by school counselors, are described and followed by suggestions as based on ethical codes.
