ETHICS CURRICULUM COURSES


To meet the ethics requirement for graduation, students must take one course from the ethics curriculum. Students are, however, permitted to take more than one ethics course except that they cannot take two that are defined as survey courses (®). Legal Profession, Legal Ethics & Film, Litigation Ethics, Practical Ethics for Civil Litigation, and Lawyers & Justice: Ethics of Public Lawyering are defined as survey courses, giving students a broad overview of ethics issues as they relate to lawyering. The other courses are focused on more specific areas of law and are not defined as survey courses.
