Conference to explore connections between law, life sciences issues
Louisville, KY | Posted on October 11th, 2007
Recent developments in the life sciences have raised numerous ethical and legal questions that scientists and community leaders are struggling to resolve.
The Conference on Law, Ethics and the Life Sciences will address such topics as the ethical and policy implications of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, land use policy and its effects on children's health, governance of conducting and applying research in nanotechnology and biotechnology, and bioethics.
Keynote speaker Stephen Kellert, Tweedy-Orday professor of social ecology at Yale University's School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, will discuss the topic, "Children's Need for Nature and Implications for Land Use and Design" Oct. 26 at 1 p.m.
Scott Dodson, assistant professor of law at the University of Arkansas School of Law, will address the conference Oct. 27 at 9 a.m. His topic will be, "The Living Constitution: What Would Darwin Say?" Dodson will take the legal understanding of the metaphor, "living document," and evaluate it from a biological perspective to see how such a perspective can shape legal debate in the life sciences.
Session speakers include local attorneys and professors from UofL and other universities across the nation.
