Bioethics: The Law, Medicine, and Ethics of Reproductive Technologies and Genetics | HarvardX on edX
An introduction to the study of bioethics and the application of legal and ethical reasoning. Take this course free on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/bioethics-law-medicine-ethics-harvardx-hls4x#! ABOUT THIS COURSE Bioethics provides an overview of the legal, medical, and ethical questions around reproduction and human genetics and how to apply legal reasoning to these questions. This law course includes interviews with individuals who have used surrogacy and sperm donation, with medical professionals who are experts in current reproductive technologies like In Vitro Fertilization and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, and bioethicists and journalists who study the ownership and use of genetic information within human tissue. Additional Harvard colleagues will also share with you their thoughts on topics such as disability law as it relates to reproductive technology. While the law and ethics surrounding these technologies are a central component to this course, we also show you examples of the deeply personal and human side of these issues. Throughout the course, and with the help of law students, we will discuss leading legal cases in this field, which will illuminate the types of questions the law has struggled with – stretching and evolving over time. From the famous Baby M surrogacy case, to cases on the paternity of sperm donors, to a case related to the ownership of human tissue turned into a commercial product, and others. We will show you the ethical, legal, and rhetorical underpinnings, which have served as the basis for various court decisions over the past 20 or 30 years. We will also explore potential future technologies and their implications for society: genetic enhancements to increase our intelligence, let us live a hundred years longer, or make us immune to diseases – and the possibility of creating animal-human hybrids, for example a mouse with a humanized brain. The content within this course is intended to be instructive, and show how legal reasoning has been applied, or could be applied, to questions related to parenthood, reproduction, and other issues surrounding human genetic material. The material organized within this course should be considered an authoritative overview, but is not intended to serve as medical or legal advice. This course is designed for a diverse audience including, but not limited to, law students, prospective law students, medical professionals, as well as members of the general public interested in questions and topics related to surrogacy, parenthood, genetic and reproductive technology, ownership of genetic material, and more. You do not need any background in law, medicine, philosophy, or really any subject to enjoy this course. This course is meant to be an introduction for anyone interested in these topics. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN - How the reproductive technology industry works, and issues raised related to buying and selling human reproductive materials - The law and ethics of surrogacy - Civil lawsuits when things go wrong with reproductive technology: wrongful birth and wrongful life lawsuits - The law and ethics of sperm donation and the legal status of sperm donors - Ethical and legal issues raised by human enhancement - The law and ethics of mixing human and animal genetic material - The ownership of human tissue and its underlying genetic information

Beginning Medical Law
BOOK REVIEW BEGINNING MEDICAL LAW Companion website By Claudia Carr Routledge Taylor & Francis Group ISBN: 978 1 13801 302 5 And an ebook www.routledge.com AN EXCELLENT FIRST STEP TO UNDERSTAND WHAT MEDICAL LAW AND ETHICS ARE ALL ABOUT An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers As Claudia Carr explains in her excellent text book on the subject of Medical Law, “medical law and ethics is a relatively new area of law that is growing in complexity by the day”, so she presents this basic primer in easily understandable terms dealing with both contemporary and current controversial issues. As with all the Routledge text books, this particular title is probably the best on the market as an introduction to the way in which “Medical Law” operates in England and Wales for those new to this developing subject. Carr adopts a clear and simple approach with legal vocabulary which is carefully clarified throughout the book. One of the main reasons why we consider the Routledge series of legal textbooks to be of outstanding value both in terms of cost and in content is the way in which their authors (all legal experts) explain substantive legal issues in such a readable fashion. For both tutors and students, a decision on which textbook or revision book to use is always difficult but it is clear to us from the feedback we have received from students that the Routledge texts lead the legal field. Many of their titles also have excellent links to websites sometimes marked as ‘companion websites’ which also add much assistance to the hard-pressed learner and is a great additional tool for all. We would also say that the formats used by Routledge for their books are very much of a mainstream formula for legal texts which eases the student into methods of legal reasoning for those just beginning their legal studies and for all undergraduates: they certainly helped us with our preparation so do ensure you look very carefully at all the titles they have on offer! Carr uses diagrams, tables and what she calls ‘on-the-spot questions’ to make the subject come alive. For us, the companion website is an innovation! Therefore, do look at the features at the beginning of the book which will assist with your learning and engagement with the subject matter. The key definitions and the many key cases together with the learning objectives in each of the 13 chapters are of particular help to those new to the subject and the title remains an ideal first introduction to Medical Law for undergraduates and anyone interested in this growing area of substantive law for 21st century. The law is stated as at 1st August 2014.

Principles of Medical Law
BOOK REVIEW PRINCIPLES OF MEDICAL LAW 3rd Edition Editors: Andrew Grubb. Judith Laing, Jean McHale Consultant Editor: Professor Sir Ian Kennedy Oxford University Press ISBN: 978-0-19-954440-0 www.oup.com MEDICAL LAW: A CHANGING LANDSCAPE AT A CONTROVERSIAL TIME An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Since the last edition of 'Principles of Medical Law' was published six years ago, any number of changes in the healthcare landscape have emerged and with them, changes in the law, notably in reforming legislation, such as the Mental Health Act which reached the statute books in 2007. Also, much has been accomplished, for example, in the fields of assisted reproduction, and the use and regulation of human material such as human organs and tissue. Legal issues arising from healthcare as a profession, the structure of the NHS and the evolving regulatory environments which impact on it are also dealt with as the controversies rage. The book is the result of team efforts by at least 20 expert contributors. As the editors acknowledge, 'the depth of expertise that this volume has demonstrated in the past has been retained, whilst the changes that [have been] introduced reflect the evolving nature of this dynamic discipline'. In over 1,200 pages with 22 chapters and two short appendices, usefully and punctiliously annotated and footnoted where appropriate, this heavy volume is logically organized into seven parts, covering areas such as: The Organization of Health Care ... Regulating Health Care Professions... Duties of Contract and Tort and Breach of Duty... Consent to Treatment...Test for Capacity... Mental Health law... Clinical Research... Medically Assisted reproduction... the Regulation of Medicinal Products... and Medical Devices Patenting and the Human Body -- and more besides. Of great interest is Part Seven of the book which deals with the many fraught and vexed legal issues surrounding the ending of life, as well as the finality of death itself and how we might review this area of law in the future. It's an authoritative, detailed and scholarly work of reference which should be considered an essential purchase for any practitioner involved in any aspect of the law pertaining to healthcare. As one would expect of a work of this stature and erudition, there are over a hundred pages of tables of cases, legislation, statutory instruments and treaties and conventions, as well as a table of European Law and a table of Legislation from other jurisdictions. A useful and lengthy index facilitates further research for a work which is aimed at such a wide readership. The law is stated as at May 2010, plus further relevant changes added at proof stage to assist in what is such a changing landscape at such a difficult time.

Privacy: A Very Short Introduction by Raymond Wacks
BOOK REVIEW PRIVACY: A Very Short Introduction By Raymond Wacks ISBN: 978-0-19-955653-3 Oxford University Press www.oup.co.uk ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Raymond Wacks has created an in-depth exploration, in only 150 pages, of the increasingly complex and controversial subject of privacy. This new addition to the excellent Very Short Introduction series from OUP of pocket-sized books on academic subjects is most welcome- short enough that is, for beleaguered commuters to read on the train, or, say, harassed lawyers to read in the courtroom corridor with 6 chapters, an annex and detailed biographical references. This book is one of over 200 small-format books in this admirable series which covers everything from African history to Wittgenstein and world trade. Written by experts, theyre intended as a stimulating and accessible way into a new subject and very accessible they are, Professor Wackss Privacy being a prime example. As he states in the Preface, Wackss association with privacy and data protection has been from a legal perspective; the law, in his words, being an indispensable instrument in the protection of privacy. The subject however encompasses other dimensions -- social, cultural political and psychological. The authors stated aim is to consider these—and several other -- forces that shape our understanding of this challenging concept. Speaking of law and lawyers, there is, to our knowledge, no more erudite and persuasive an advocate for protecting privacy than Raymond Wacks. If you ever find yourself in a debate on privacy versus free speech, this is the succinct yet thoroughly researched source of some very effective arguments in favour of privacy. These arguments are all the more convincing in the light of recent technological developments, which worryingly, can be misused, including electronic surveillance, biometrics, CCTV, ID cards, (ID cards? Hate em!) ubiquitous RFID codes on various plastic-y cards, increasingly sophisticated developments in DNA -- and the entire Internet -- and so on and this list is by no means exhaustive. Against all this, the tension between privacy and free speech escalates. The danger with any surfeit of privacy legislation is that, like any new development, it can get out of hand. What Dr Johnson might have termed yelps for privacy often come from individuals, or institutions ranting about transparency then ranting in favour of privacy to cover up things theyd rather you didnt know about. The view is that we all should have the right to privacy within reason, but when privacy triumphs over freedom of speech, miscreants everywhere get the freedom to do what they want without fear of the pesky press snooping around and finding out. Those with dictatorial tendencies Stalin, Mao, Richard Nixon loved their privacy with a passion. But then again, we ordinary folk treasure privacy too, although not necessarily at the expense of other freedoms. So what to do? The ideal answer, suggests Wacks, is explicit, carefully drafted legislation that creates civil and criminal sanctions for seriously offensive, intentional and reckless intrusion into an individuals solitude or seclusion and the unauthorized publication of personal information. This sounds sensible, even though you might timidly ask, unauthorized by whom? In all, however, Wacks has made a valuable, reasoned and authoritative contribution to the ongoing debate that continues to rage around this thorny subject- the question remains: are you being watched when you read this very short introduction?

Principles of Medical Law
BOOK REVIEW PRINCIPLES OF MEDICAL LAW Fourth Edition Edited by Judith Laing and Jean McHale Consultant Editors: Sir Ian Kennedy and Andrew Grubb ISBN: 978 0 19873 251 8 Oxford University Press www.oup.com DEFINITIVE HELP WITH A VERY COMPLICATED SUBJECT: ‘THE PRINCIPLES OF MEDICAL LAW’ OUT NOW IN A NEW FOURTH EDITION FOR 2017 An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Medical Law: now there’s a complicated subject for you to get your head round, especially if you are a practitioner who specializes -- or intends to specialise -- in what has become a rapidly expanding area of law. Fortunately for you, the Oxford University Press has brought out a new and completely updated edition of ‘Principles of Medical Law.’ Long regarded as the definitive work in this area, this new edition, the fourth in fact, has been completely updated to encompass the new developments that have transpired since the previous edition appeared in 2010. Writing in the foreword, Ian Kennedy and Andrew Grubb recall the day when medical law was a ‘relative newcomer’, in legal specialities. In their words, it ‘barely existed, such that you were free to make it up as you went along!’ It’s something of a sobering thought that that day has long gone. Nevertheless, they add, ‘this work always had in its genesis, an ambition to serve academics, practitioners and judges alike’ and, with its depth of scholarship and coverage, has since maintained ‘a claim to have fulfilled that ambition with style.’ As medical law is dependent on specialist practitioners, the emergence of a new edition of this classic text is fortuitous; especially so when the NHS is coping with an ageing population -- and when even the man in the street can tell you that the government has set aside billions in funding for medical litigation. Private medical practitioners are of course privately insured. Developments such as these broadly coincide with what the editors refer to as the ‘fundamental rights-based approach in the courtroom….’ as (to cite only one example), doctors are made aware of a duty to provide information to patients. Other areas of concern include end of life care and the determination of mental capacity. Given the complexity and enormous scope of the subject, the book itself is a collaborative work of a distinguished and expert writing team: two editors, two consultant editors and upwards of sixteen other contributors. Across almost 1,300 pages, seven parts and twenty-two articles, the book offers detailed analysis and commentary on a formidably broad range of other issues, from the organisation and regulation of health care, to actions arising from birth, to consent to treatment, to the regulation of medicinal products and medical devices – and of course, much more. Here is a field fraught with uncertainties and these too are dealt with in a measured, frank and analytical manner. Of additional and indeed vital assistance to the practitioner are the almost ninety pages of tables of: (as listed) cases, legislation… statutory instruments… treaties and conventions… European law… and legislation from other jurisdictions. It’s helpful, too, that a text this size is easy to navigate, with numbered paragraphs, a detailed index and table of contents and extensive footnoting. Given the pace of attitudinal and policy changes in this field, this book provides invaluable assistance to the practitioner charged with providing authoritative and carefully considered advice to clients -- and therefore a welcome addition to the well-stocked and up-to-date practitioner library. The publication date is cited as at 2017.
