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 daily practice. Along the way, the instructors will give meaningful insight into what it is like to practice law in a broad range of practice areas, including transactions, litigation and public service. Class attendance and participation will be an essential aspect of this course. The student's grade will be based on class participation, a substantial series of short take-home exercises and a final, take-home examination.
