Hi there, I need help coming up with arguments for "why laws should be followed if thought not to be ethical" as part of the debate potion of my English grade. So if anyone came come up with a for argument it would be appreciated, thanks.

Law: the system of rules that a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and may enforce by the imposition of penalties. This is the definition of law. It doesn't matter whether or not you think a law is ethical. You must recognize the law or else you shall be penalized.
