    Legality is a code of behavior shared by society at large.

    Ethicality is a code of behavior voluntarily adopted by disparate individuals as a condition of inclusion in a formally defined community.

    Morality is an individually defined code of behavior. However, morality is often shared by people of similar cultural background: that common background tends to lead them to adopt the same moral code.
