Law 831 Bioethical Issues in the Law
Credits: 2 - 3
The course will cover topics such as legal reasoning in bioethical situations, determination of death, issues in human reproduction, organ transplantation, genetic testing, clinical research with human subjects, and endof-life decision-making. This second survey course in the health law area will provide students who take this course and the Healthcare Organizations and Finance course with a broad understanding of this increasingly important area of the law. Neither class is a prerequisite for the other class. They may be taken concurrently or in any order chosen by the student. Professor Huberfeld plans to use the same text book for both courses. Students must take either Healthcare Organizations and Finance or Bioethical Issues in the Law in order to enroll in the seminar entitled Healthcare Law and Policy Seminar, which is offered by Professor Huberfeld in the Spring semester.
RECOMMENDED: Constitutional Law II (Law 822).
