Ethics and law are the same in that you should abide by both. They are both restrictions on your behavior. Although ethics are a more personal choice.

People are confused that law and ethics are same things but they are different from each other. But they both maintaine moral values and keep preventing voilation. Law are written and aproved documents where as ethics also written words(most times) but they are not carrying legal status. Ethics helps a professional, practitioner and expert in following law. In any trade there are code of conduct and law as well and what expert describe that both mend to be obeyed. But unfortunately nobody following law in true manner. if the condition of law is that then expect whats the condition of ethics. it is also defined as "the descipline with what is good and bad or right and wrong or moral duty and obligation....While the LAW is an assumption is often made that what is right is also what is legal and what is legal is also what is right....

Ethical values and legal principles are usually closely related, but ethical obligations typically exceed legal duties. In some cases, the law mandates ethical conduct. Examples of the application of law or policy to ethics include employment law, federal regulations, and codes of ethics.
