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.

Inequality of wealth and opportunity abounds. At the gas station and in the grocery store, at work and at play, in television broadcasts and century-old cases, discrepancies in peoples’ means and circumstances loom plainly for all to see. What counts as inequality, and what explains it? When, if ever, should the state—or subunits of the state like courts—attempt to ameliorate it? This seminar will explore these and related questions. Readings will include The White Tiger (Adiga), The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck), and Nickel and Dimed (Ehrenreich).

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
