Description

Practicing Bioethics Law provides basic readings in the field of bioethics law, including court cases, statutes, administrative regulations, briefs, and law review and other academic articles. The text presents theoretical debates about the latest bioethical subjects as well as practice-based materials that expose students to a wide range of possible bioethics-related careers. The book’s companion website provides practice documents, videos, pictures, scientific materials and other information that is too complex to include in a traditional casebook. The authors combined the book and the website so readers could learn more about the practice of bioethics law at the same time they are beginning to understand the theory and content of bioethics law. The second edition includes updated materials on the meaning of informed consent, death and dying, reproductive rights, the ways in which advances in genetics (including CRISPR) affect patent and other rights, genetic editing, and neuroethics, as well as discussions of the ways in which bioethics has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
