The engineer in private practice faces special problems in applying the broad concepts of the ASCE Code of Ethics to his activities. Areas of conflict include particularly the engineer-client relationship and the engineer's activities in attempting to sell his services. Case studies are presented highlighting difficult ethical decisions and demonstrating the consequences of certain actions. Policing the Code of Ethics is discussed. With rare exception the members of the ASCE, including engineers in private practice, discharge their obligations under the code with honesty and integrity.
