Stein Center for Law and Ethics


The Louis Stein Center for Law and Ethics works in collaboration with law students, practitioners, judges and legal scholars to study and improve the legal profession by: honoring exemplary lawyers; inculcating ethics into teaching law; training future lawyers “in the service of others;” incorporating ethical and professional values into academic and mentoring programs; and encouraging scholarly inquiry and scholarship on the professional conduct and regulation of lawyers. Above all, the Stein Center fosters an understanding of “ethical legal practice” that goes beyond adherence to the rules set forth in professional codes of conduct.  The Stein Center funds and, jointly with the Public Interest Resource Center, oversees the student-driven Stein Scholars Program, an academic and service program in which selected students to participate through all three years of law school, and throughout their careers.
