Michael Sweeney : Courses and Seminars
Professional Responsibility in the Real World
This course, which satisfies the professional responsibility requirement, addresses real world ethical issues and challenges facing attorneys in private practice and public service. The instructors, members of a major international law firm, will make the rules governing the professional responsibilities of lawyers come alive by discussing a number of examples taken from the headlines and from daily practice. Along the way, the instructors will give meaningful insight into what it's like to practice law in a broad range of practice areas, including transactions, litigation, and public service. Classes will include both a lecture portion and a discussion of practical exercises. Class attendance and participation will be an essential and worthwhile aspect of this course. The student's grade will be based on an examination, a series of short homework exercises, and class participation.
