Ethics, access to justice and professionalism – locally and globally – have increasingly become foundational topics of attention over the past several years at all levels of the justice community. This course is designed to look directly at those issues.
Specifically, this course provides an introduction to the legal profession, professional norms and values, and the ethical issues that lawyers grapple with not only in the context of their many and varied roles, but also as members of a profession with collective responsibilities in relation to the public interest and access to justice. The course situates these issues within their modern day context; that is, within a context characterized by local diverse communities, globalization, legal pluralism, transnationalism, and internationalization.
