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.

A joint offering with the program in Medical Humanities, this interprofessional seminar explores the theme of memory as a key element of the moral life. The professions, like individual persons, have a rich and complicated relationship with time and tradition. What and how the professions and their practitioners remember (and forget) helps to shape identity, affects interpretations of the past, and influences present action, all with moral consequences. Readings range from ancient Greek tragedy to twentieth-century modernist fiction and a prizewinning twenty-first-century novel. Enrollment is limited to six law students and six medical students.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
