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.

This seminar will explore some of the myriad connections between film and the legal domain. We will evaluate the ways in which lawyers and their work are represented in film, and the ways in which those representations influence perceptions and experiences of lawyers and the legal system. We also will consider the ways in which films are used in, by, and as law. Texts will include movies, documentaries, and, perhaps, the odd case or two.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
