Course Overview

Due to the nature Due to the nature of the legal profession, an attorney’s goals — acting with integrity while zealously working for the interests of a client — can become very complex and nuanced.
This course will discuss a number of very common ethical dilemmas that attorneys routinely face, many of which are exclusive to the legal profession. Using the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility, various cases, and scholarly articles as discussion points, this course surveys and discusses frequent ethical issues relevant to lawyers. As comparative law sharpens one’s knowledge and gives perspective about how to deal with intricate questions, this course also incorporates the traditional Jewish legal approach to these ethical dilemmas.

Even with the highest ideals and best intentions, we don't always know the right thing to say or do. Living with integrity is never easy. We all try the best we can. But every one of us faces dilemmas day in and day out that challenge our sense of right and wrong.

The importance of thinking deeply about ethics in our ethically challenged
political and social climate is clear. Judaism has contemplated these issues
for thousands of years, and the insights
of the Torah and Talmud are unique.

Professor of Bioethics;

Living with Integrity provides its students with an opportunity
to think about their values and behaviors and align them with the
kind of person that they want to be.
Joanne B. Ciulla, Ph.D.

Living with Integrity is a refreshing reminder in our age of
relativism that there are solid answers to our various ethical
dilemmas which we face in everyday life.

Founder of the International Forgiveness Institute, Inc.
