Categories: Legal Profession

Instructor(s) Schweitzer, Nick

Professional Responsibilities: How lawyers see and resolve real world ethical problems by applying the Rules of Professional Conduct, other legal standards and  non-doctrinal standards, including  personal ethics is this courses work.  Real world ethics scenarios will reveal how some dilemmas are decided by legal standards while others allow for a range of legally permissible responses.  While choice enables freedom, it obligates wise decision making which is the main learning objective of this course.  Grading is based on a final exam, short written assignments and active class participation.
