This course allows you to reflect on the complex ethical issues presented. It deals with how you feel in certain situations rather than presenting rules and regulations.
The course is designed for junior lawyers. Right v. right dilemmas, matters of duty, responsibility, character, and consequence are offered for reflection. Ethical issues pervade professional life, and the moral distress they can create requires thoughtful reflection that moves beyond knee-jerk intuitions and gut reactions.
This course presents a practical framework for assessing and resolving ethical dilemmas in a sophisticated manner guided by a circumspect and reflective analysis able to withstand the scrutiny of others and minimize the potential for personal regrets.
