This seminar will feature the presentation and discussion of cutting edge scholarship on health law, health policy, biotechnology and bioethics. Students must submit brief written comments on a number of the papers. Because the papers are different every term, students can take the class as many times as they wish. This course meets 12 times total across the whole year, likely 6 times each semester, so half of the weeks will be 'off' weeks where no workshop will take place. The course may only be taken for the full year, not for one semester. Presenters will come from a wide range of disciplines and departments, and papers may feature doctrinal, economics, philosophical, political science, or other methods, but students need not have prior training in these disciplines. To determine whether this workshop is a good fit for their interests, students are encouraged to browse the listing of papers presented in past years that can be found here:
Note: The credit breakdown for this seminar is as follows: two total credits with one credit awarded in the fall and one credit awarded in the spring.
