Ethics Curriculum Courses
2002-2004

Updated:  11/4/02


To meet the ethics requirement for the J.D. degree, 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, and Practical Ethics for Civil Litigation 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.
