Sir David) Ross, moral duties are not universal and unconditional constraints of universal practical reason. Rather they are conditional or prima facie obligations to act that arise out of the various relations in which humans stand to one another: neighbor, friend, parent, debtor, fellow citizen, and the like. This view gives content to duties based on a kind of role morality. It is through moral reflection that one apprehends these duties as being grounded in the nature of situated relations.

Some duties are directed toward the interests of clients or firms, but ultimately the performance of these duties supports the particular profession. The grounding of duties in professional codes resembles the function of rules under rule utilitarianism. These rules would not be morally required for the general public, as would the rules of a deontological ethics. Professional codes are tools to improve the profession; the end of right action, in this case, is dependent upon the good of the profession, and the content of duties will depend on the particular views of the authors concerning that good.
