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 full-year seminar. In this section, for each class we will read a (usually) recent book on the criminal justice system or adjacent public policy arenas--where we are, how we got here, and what we might do about it. We will announce a final list of books in the fall, but they are likely to include Impact by Lawrence Friedman, Punishment without Crime by Alexandra Natapoff, and The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist by Randy Balko. Attendance at all 5 sessions is mandatory for credit for the course.
