Course Description:

Seminars in Ethical Values are designed to enhance students' understanding of ethical issues and address the broader ethical and moral responsibilities of the lawyer as citizen and leader. The seminars are graded on a pass/fail basis; students earn one credit in the spring semester upon successful completion of the seminar.

The Issue of Ageing." The course will focus on one topic -ageing and ageism- across time periods and national boundaries. Ageing is a fraught subject, one that brings together healthcare, family dynamics, individual psychology, the ethical treatment of the old and infirm, end-of-life crises, and finances/economics. We plan to visit these issues in five films from five countries in order to compare how various societies confront artistically and aesthetically the challenges of ageing. In addition, we will read selected articles and chapters on the subject. The films include: "Son of the Bride" (El hijo de la novia, Argentina, 2001), "Away from Her" (Canada, 2006), "King Lear" (UK, 2008), "Mid-August Lunch" (Pranzo di Ferragosto, Italy, 2008), and "Amour" (France, 2012).

NOTE: The seminar will meet on five Tuesday evenings in the fall term starting at 7:30 p.m. Do not register for it if you have a conflict on any Tuesday evenings in the fall term before Nov. 19.
