Ethical and Legal Observations on Contract Cheating Services as an Agreement
Tauginiene, Loreta; Jurkevicius, Vaidas
International Journal for Educational Integrity, v13 Article 9 2017
In this paper we cast light on one form of dishonest behaviour in academia--contract cheating services. We examine how an agreement between a student and a contract cheating services provider is viewed from ethical and legal perspectives. For this purpose we carried out an analysis of contract cheating services as an agreement which, in Lithuania, is currently facing the challenge of implementing laws regarding contract cheating services as a violation of academic ethics. Taking into consideration recent jurisprudence, together with social media articles, we conclude that while any agreement for contract cheating services is severely criticized in terms of ethics, the courts either do not regard this type of agreement as a violation of legal norms, or they inadequately apply legal remedies when such an agreement is deemed to be void.
