Although law and science have interacted for centuries, their interactions today pose enormous challenges, reflected in issues ranging from reproductive technology and resource conservation to genetic technology and biological warfare.
The emerging dialogue is complex and requires an ongoing re-thinking of general principles, such as expert biological evidence which features in a wide range of legal contexts, including medical law, torts, crime and intellectual property.
Studying the myriad ways in which law and biology come together in many areas of contemporary life, The Nexus of Law and Biology: New Ethical Challenges explores the juridical uses of biological sciences to illuminate key issues and contemporary intersections, arguing that each of several disciplines must dialog with one another while recognizing a common ground in ethics. Featuring an impressive roster of contributors, this book serves as an invaluable reference for legal scholars, students, practising lawyers and scientists engaged with the legal system.
