ETHICS CURRICULUM COURSE INFORMATION    (updated 10/24/05)

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, Reel Justice, Legal Ethics Beginning with Film,  Lawyers and Ethics in Film & Law, Litigation Ethics, Practical Ethics for Civil Litigation, and Lawyers & Justice: The Ethics of Public Interest Lawyering are defined as survey courses, giving students a broad overview of ethics issues as they relate to lawyering.
