American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics




The distinguished health law and policy scholars we invite to contribute to the American Journal of Law & Medicine's annual symposium issue are given carte blanche to write about any aspect of the designated topic that appeals to them. The authors in this year's genetics symposium, The Genetic Revolution: Conflicts, Challenges and Conundra, are already well known for their work in the field-in fact three of them have just co-authored the only casebook specifically dedicated to the law, policy and ethics of geneticsl-and we deliberately asked them for relatively short pieces on the theory that taken together their articles would build a unique conceptual whole. We are always intrigued with what our experts choose to write about in these annual symposia, and this year is no exception. Our eminent authors have produced an array of articles on Phase II of the Genetics Revolution that take on a wide spectrum of sophisticated legal questions, from the specifically global to the explicitly individual.
