Seminar in Ethical Values (YR)
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.
A joint offering with the program in Medical Humanities, this seminar examines memory in professional and personal life. Law, medicine and other professions, like individuals, have complex relationships with time and tradition. What and how we remember (or choose not to) powerfully influences the present and the future. Readings will include Sophocles' play Antigone as well as short stories by James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway and Jorge Luis Borges.
