Law and Biomedicine Colloquium (Spring 2019)
Every Wednesday from January 9 – February 27
3:10-5:10 p.m., S.J. Quinney College of Law, Room 4609
The Colloquium, organized by Professor Leslie Francis, is aimed at introducing students to outstanding scholars and practitioners in areas of law related to contemporary issues in law and the biosciences. Our previous Colloquiums have been great successes, and we hope to build on that again this upcoming year. The Law and Biomedicine Colloquium brings together scholars, practitioners in our community, law students, and law faculty for seminar-style discussion of complex and controversial topics in the field. We are excited to be welcoming distinguished scholars from other law schools in the region, as well as leaders in legal practice in law and the biosciences. Registered students at the College of Law will receive one hour of credit for participating in the colloquium; other interested participants are welcome to join us.
