Course Description

This is the first semester of a yearlong seminar designed to enhance students' understanding of ethical issues and address the broader ethical and moral responsibilities of the lawyer as citizen and leader. This course will examine a number of high profiles cases of fraud, as described in non-fiction books, articles, and other media. Several of the cases will be drawn from the business world, but we will consider fraud in other contexts as well. We will explore common elements of various frauds among perpetrators, those who were drawn into the fraud as victims, and those who revealed (or attempted to reveal) the fraud.
