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.

Is it the thought that counts?
This seminar will explore the moral significance of intentions in several different contexts. For example we will discuss whether one has the same moral responsibility for the unintended but foreseen effects of ones actions as for intended effects, whether inattentiveness to the bad effects of ones actions is morally less blameworthy than intending those same bad effects, and whether good intentions are what matters most to moral virtue. These questions will be explored largely through fiction and film.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required
