Laws are written "rules" that have gone through a system of some form of government process and voted upon by officials. Ethics are a more loosley concieved element that contain a sense of right and wrong in regard to proper conduct such as the treatment of other people and or behavior that may affect others or their situation
They are both governing bodies that tell one what one should do in any given situation. For instance, Law tells you what you should not do (such as robbery) and what you should do (such as stop at a red light). Ethics governs what you should do (for example not kill animals). However, ethics are specific to you and your beliefs and only you hold yourself accountable as apposed to law which the government, law enforcement, and the public hold you accountable. Ethics are not law however they can act as law such as a regulated profession (nursing for instance) instructs that nurses that they must have a licence and follow the professional standards outlined by the governing body to carry the licence to practice. The professional standards state that one must follow the code of ethics created by governing body and if they do not than their licence is removed. Therefore it is essentially law for the nurses to follow the code of ethics to avoid having their licence removed because it is absolutely law that they must practice with a licence.
Law and Ethics are not the same thing at all. Just because something is legal does not necessarily mean it is moral or ethical, and vice versa.
One example would be the Holocaust. When Hitler gave an order, his orders were, by definition, LAW. Thus when he ordered the death of millions, it was legal (there were not even international laws forbidding it at that time), but would it be called moral or ethical? Those who disobeyed their orders to commit genocide were disobeying law.
The same could be said of Slavery. It was legal, but that did not make it moral or ethical. And those who ran the Underground Railroad were violating the law... But they were acting in a moral and ethical manner.
