The modern corporation makes decisions in an increasingly complex world, and those choices may raise ethical dilemmas that impact many constituencies. The business lawyer should understand this decision process beyond the legal boundaries. This course explores the role of ethics in corporate decisionmaking, the influence and limits of law, and the agentís role in the decision process. Course readings will be varied including law review articles, selected chapters from books, short readings in moral philosophy, primary legal sources, and case studies. This course will require a written research project, which may be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement.
