Instructor(s): Dov Fox

3 credit(s), Letter Graded
Requirement(s): Writing
Concentration(s): Health Law, Children's Rights

Millions of children each year are born using reproductive technologies. The emergence of new, technologically advanced ways to have children has raised new questions in tax, torts, contract, inheritance, immigration, family, constitutional, and especially health law. This course considers the cases, statutes, and policies that explore these issues. We will cover topics including sperm donation, egg freezing, gamete selling, embryo disputes, prenatal torts, surrogacy contracts, fertility tourism, and posthumous conception. No background in science or medicine is required.
