MLS - 2002 Ethics in the Law and Public Policy


(3 hrs.)

This course provides students with an overview of the moral and political values that inform the policies and political processes in the United States. Particular emphasis is put on the status of the non-elected public officials who face the challenges of working in a world shaped by politics. Many topics covered during this course are studied through the double lens of ethics and politics. To help guide the comprehension of the social realities, the course provides students with an introduction to various moral theories that have shaped contemporary policy debates, a consideration of the principal values that animate American politics, and issues and dilemmas in professional ethics.

 

  Pending Faculty Approval. Only available to MLS students starting April 2019 and later.
