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 seminar is a joint offering with the medical school's program in Health Humanities, this Seminar in Ethical Values examines memory in both professional and personal life. Law, medicine, and other professions, like individuals, have complex relationships with time, tradition, and traumatic events, and what and how we remember (or forget) shapes the present and the future. Readings will include works by Sophocles, Shakespeare, Virginia Woolf, and Jorge Luis Borges.
