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. We will discuss five works of literature or film that raise ethical and philosophical questions about the human condition. In the past, our selections have included works such as The Trial (Kavka), Catch-22 (Heller), The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck), The White Tiger (Adiga), and Barton Fink (Coen Bros.).
