LAW-2113 Assisted Reproductive Technology Law

Mr. Bruce Hale, Ms. Maureen McBrien,

2 credits day; 2 credits evening.


Grade will be based on the quality of the written paper.


The development of assisted reproductive technology has had a major impact on legal and medical developments, including those arising from intrauterine, in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer, tradition and gestational surrogacy, and the potential for reproduction, inheritance, adoption, control and disposition or cryopreserved embryos and use of assisted reproductive technology in same-sex unions and non-traditional families.


Faculty comments: This is a small enrollment seminar. All students are expected to have completed courses in contracts, family law and torts. The class meetings consist of active discussion led by the professors in which students are expected to participate. Students are expected to participate in the discussion, and such participation is considered in grading; the student written paper and oral summary of the research is the primary basis of the grade. Consultation with the teachers as to on-going research is encouraged. An assignment is made for each class in the book written by the teachers and selected cases, statutes and problems.
