Preview

This book is the latest volume in the Current Legal Issues series, which is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year, leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloqium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Bioethics contains a broad range of essays by scholars of law, medicine, biosciences, and philosophy interested in the interactions between law and bioethics. It includes topical studies examining the regulation of stem cell research, human rights and bioethics, the regulation of reproductive technologies, and distributive justice in healthcare and pandemic planning. This book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of legal theory, moral philosophy, medical law, bioethics, and medical ethics.
