Genetics:Ethics, Law, and Policy / Edition 2by Lori B. Andrews
Pub. Date: 07/28/2006
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
This is the revised edition of the casebook, Genetics: Ethics, Law, and Policy, which has been used successfully in law schools in both the seminar and course context. It is authored by three of the nation's leading experts on genetic ethics, law and policy. Students enjoy the course because of the topicality of the subjects, many of which they hear about in the news (gene discoveries, embryo stem cell research). Faculty members enjoy teaching from the book because of the excellent teaching manual and because they can link it to other topics - the casebook covers issues in health law, employment law, insurance law, criminal law, family law, and other fields. The casebook is supplemented regularly on the TWEN website, so that it is always current. A background in genetics is not required for either students or teachers. The casebook and teachers' manual are written so that the casebook can be used for undergraduate courses or courses for the health professions, for public health, or for public policy.
