Health Law, Bioethics, and Human Rights
SPH LW 840
Health law, bioethics, and human rights are converging in challenging ways, especially at the national level (in both legislation and constitutional adjudication), and the international law level. This seminar will explore the convergence and its meaning for the law and society through specific case studies including post-9/11 proposals for mass quarantine; torture and force-feeding justifications in the GWOT; genetic engineering and the new reproductive technologies; the relationship between abortion and the death penalty; and the meaning of the ?right to health.? This class is taught at BU School of Public Health and meets the Health Law, Bioethics, and Human Rights Department captone requirement.
