Advanced Professional Responsibility: The Business of Big Law     LAW-735

In this course, students will discuss some of the most important questions facing the legal profession today: What role does money play in the practice of law? Why have women and minorities lagged in advancing in the profession? Why has Big Law exploded? In seeking answers to these questions, students will engage in a series of in-class group presentations and write response papers as we grapple with these issues. We will also have a series of prominent attorneys and industry professionals give their unique perspectives on the important ethical and moral issues currently facing the profession.
