Seminars Explore Legal Ethics, Morality Through Popular Literature and Film

Each year at the University of Virginia School of Law, more than a dozen professors put their unique stamp on the courseSeminar in Ethical Values, which is structured around popular books, films and even simulations in order to spark discussion about lawyers' ethical and moral responsibilities. The one-credit seminars are typically taught in the professors' homes or other informal settings, and resemble a book or film club, but are focused on a particular theme.
