The subtitle of Lori Andrew's autobiographical The Clone Age is "Adventures in the New World of Reproductive Technology."' This may seem an odd characterization of the life of a legal scholar, but adventures is just right to chronicle the life of this academic legal activist. Lori's legal adventures began at Yale Law School and continue in Chicago, where she was a researcher at the American Bar Association for over a decade and is now professor of law at Chicago-Kent College of Law and Director of the Institute for Science, Law and Technology. Her adventures in health law can also be dated from the day she took her bar examination which was, perhaps not coincidentally, the same day the world's first "test-tube baby," Louise Brown, was born. The new reproductive technologies have not provided her only health law subject, nonetheless, the legal issues they have gestated have been the primary focus of her work. This area of health law even has a new name: "reprogenetics," denoting the marriage of reproductive technology and genetic technology.
