Current Offerings

Discussion (1L): Human Reproduction in the 21st Century: Legal and Ethical Issues (240Q): This seminar will discuss issues around human reproduction in the 20th and 21st centuries. We will talk about abortion "including the Dobbs case," and the problems of when life or rights begin, eugenics, embryo selection, and embryo editing (also known as "designer babies"). An underlying theme will be how "we" -- a culture, as a legal system, as legal systems -- decide what should and shouldn't be done. Class meets 6:30 PM-8:30 PM on Sept. 20, Oct. 11, Oct. 18, Nov. 1.
