Please complete the assignments below. When you are finished, pass the quiz and click "Finish Module" (below) to continue on to the next module.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Students will:

  • understand a lawyer's commitment to service
  • review the obligation to promote justice and fairness
  • gain a better understanding of ways to use new law-related skills
  • take account of the lawyer's role as an officer of the court
  • understand that their developing legal competence is an ethical requirement
  • learn ways to enhance this competence by successful strategies in law school
  • think about ways to use legal skills in various careers
  • understand that learning the law is not just for lawyers

Students are expected to work on all four courses simultaneously. They may not finish one course, for example, then go back and begin another. The site has a mechanism that will prevent students from streamlining only one course. This mechanism is called a "module block," and it will stop you from clicking through.

MODULE OBJECTIVE

Students will:

  • gain an understanding of legal ethics
  • understand Concord's Honor Code and how it affects student conduct
  • learn strategies to enhance competent representation of clients and interaction with colleagues in the workplace
