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 the challenges faced by young professionals, and particularly young lawyers, in balancing their professional and private lives. We will use a number of texts, including contemporary fiction, sociology, and psychology, to examine constraints and opportunities in creating compatible personal and professional lives. We will read these texts with the following questions in mind: How can a commitment to a demanding legal career coincide with a commitment to a healthy personal life? What can institutions do to support a balance between work and life? And what effect do institutional cultures and policies have on the division of labor between men and women in the public and private spheres?

NOTE: The class sessions will generally meet on Sunday evenings.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
