The 2022 Law and Ethics fellowship program is a two-term fellowship that introduces students to the study and application of ethics and its relationship to the practice of disagreement on the Supreme Court and some pending cases on its docket. Students will meet with a range of scholars, including our named lecturers Steven Pinker and Nita Farahany, in a small, informal group setting.
Normative questions are at the core of the study of ethics. This includes not just those working in moral and political philosophy but those who also study legal institutions and norms, religious ethics, health care ethics, welfare economics and a range of other topics and issues. The Institute seeks to build upon this core as it affirms an ecumenical definition of "ethics," one that intersects with a range of disciplines across the Dartmouth curriculum.
