Overview

Introduces students to a wide range of law-related activities with selected materials that are instructive for lawyers, judges, and legislators (and other counselors, adjudicators, and rulemakers). Part I is a brief conceptual analysis of the nature of the New Biology and of theories for evaluating its importance, its continued development, and its applications. A discussion of "technology assessment" is included as part of this review. Includes analyses of what would count as reasons for various uses of technology, e.g., therapeutic justifications for use of behavior control technologies.
