ETHICS CURRICULUM

Updated:  4/8/04
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 more than one that are defined as survey courses (). Legal Profession, Lawyers and Ethics in Film & Law (formerly Legal Ethics in 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.
