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.

In this section, we will take up the question: What constitutes human excellence? That is, what does it mean to live a good life? In each class, we will take up a distinct understanding of what human flourishing entails, including: the mastery of a craft, the pursuit of glory, discovery of self or of the world, a commitment to a code of conduct (whether moral, religious or military), and a striving for emotional connection to others. Readings will likely include On the Road and Walden, and films will include Giro Dreams of Sushi, My Dinner with Andre, and A Man For All Seasons.

NOTE: We plan to meet on Monday nights.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
