Do we need to be able to cite specific standards in the ethics written response questions?
For example, here is the Schweser scoring key for a question:
Did Anderson violate the Code of Standards by telling White aobut Peterson’s impending divorce? Justify your response with one reason.
My Response: Yes, Anderson discussed peterson’s personal situation with White, who is not a part of Anderson’s firm, without consent from Peterson.
Schweser Answer Key: Yes, Anderson must not divulge client information to anyone outside his firm unless requred to do so by law or the client permits disclosure. This is a violation of the standard Duties to Clients - Preservation of Conrfidentiality.
1 point for Answering Yes.
2 points for the explanation.
Would my answer get 1, 2, or 3 points? Do I need to specifically cite the Duties to Clients - Preservation of Confidentiality?
