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 seminar, we will explore how to live a good life. Our readings will include an eclectic mix of books in which historical figures and fictional characters confront important ethical and physical challenges. Although input from registered students will determine the final list, we will probably read Michael Pollan, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; Stephen Ambrose, Undaunted Courage; Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master’s Son; Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex; and Jonathan Haidt, The Happiness Hypothesis.

NOTE: Our seminar will meet from 6:30-9pm on the following five Monday evenings: September 29, November 3, February 2, March 16, and April 13. We will serve a buffet dinner at each meeting.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
