Ethics Curriculum Course Information 2006-2007

(Updated: 10/22/06)

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, Reel Justice, Practical Ethics for Civil Litigation, Litigation Ethics & Practice Management, Lawyers & Justice: Ethics of Public Interest Lawyering, and Lawyers & Ethics in Film & Law, 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.
