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 focus on lawyers, judges, and ethics over a person's entire life and career. The reading will be a particular genre of nonfiction -- biographies and autobiographies of judges and lawyers. We will discuss what the biographer was trying to convey about the lawyer, what contributions the subject made to legal practice, the ethical dimensions of that person's life and work over time, and whether that person's life and work reflected the social and intellectual times or in part helped to shape them.

NOTE: Sessions will be held on Sunday evenings at 6:00 at our home. The dates for the sessions are: Sept. 8, Oct. 27, Jan. 26, Mar. 2, and April 13. For our first session, students should read Justice Stevens' recent memoir, Five Chiefs.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
