Ethics and Government Service

The objective of this course is to provide a rigorous introduction to the legal framework surrounding government ethics, standards of conduct in government service, and federal conflicts of interest statutes . The course will utilize the federal ethics rules as applied to individuals servicing Executive Branch positions as our model. The course will allow students to explore the legal complexities related to state and federal ethics regarding employee conduct and the associated challenges for lawyers who represent clients in ethics matters. 

The course will include two written components.  The first is a team exercise which will follow the timeline for Presidentially Appointed, Senate Confirmed nominees from nomination to confirmation.  The second written component will be an individual assignment where students are responsible for providing ethics guidance and advice to a new government employee.   

Students who successfully complete this course will gain general knowledge of the legal framework regarding Government Ethics and specific knowledge of selected topics including internal and external gifts, outside activities, use of government resources and misuse of position, conflicts of interest both personal and financial, political activities of government employees, consideration for leaving government services, and other ethics systems guiding congressional, judiciary, and state government. Students will improve their ability to assess fact patterns involving issue spotting, legal analysis, and application of their knowledge in the preparation of a legal memo for a government employee. Finally, students will increase proficiency in practical legal skills by producing a final written product intended as formal legal advice from a government ethics attorney to a new government employee.

This course will introduce students to fundamental principles of U.S. copyright law. The legal protection of "creative" content as an intangible property right has been statutorily recognized in the U.S. for over 200 years. While legal rights in such works are often seen as rooted in economic rationale, the law has changed over time, in response to technological challenges and international developments. The course will therefore also provide students with an understanding of how U.S. copyright law functions and adapts in this changing environment. Students with an interest in any branch of modern intellectual property law and how it responds to modern challenges will benefit from this course. Hybrid Juris Doctor students cannot take this course for an S/U grade.
