Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences Lectures

About This Show

Show Info:

The Cambridge Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences (LML), led by Dr Kathleen Liddell (Director) and Dr Jeffrey Skopek (Deputy Director), advances research and teaching on legal and ethical challenges at the forefront of medicine and the life sciences. Rapid and prolific scientific advances, alongside changing attitudes towards health, medical care, family structures and related issues, pose some of the most difficult research questions of our era. These include questions about the adequacy of patents to incentivize medical innovation, the nature of informed consent, the allocation of liability for medical wrongs, the scope of privacy rights in electronic health records, the rationing of medical care, the regulation of emerging technologies and the implications of personalized medicine. In addressing these and many other challenges, LML looks beyond the boundaries of medical law as traditionally conceived. Our members specialise not only in medical law and bioethics, but also in areas such as competition law, family law, human rights, public law, information law, international law and intellectual property. In addition, many have training in disciplines other than law (including medicine, economics, history and philosophy) and relevant professional experience (including legal practice, private consultancy and civil service). This playlist contains lectures and other events held by the LML. For more information see the LML website at http://www.lml.law.cam.ac.uk/Read more »
