The Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences presents the 4th Annual Law and Biomedicine Colloquium
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 four 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. A small reception with light refreshments will be held after each session. Visit the Center’s webpage to learn more about the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences.
1 hour CLE. Free and open to the public. For questions about this event, contact Angela (801) 587-2433.

CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) is leading a revolution in our ability to edit DNA. CRISPR is not the first such tool – arguably we have been intentionally editing DNA in living organisms for 45 years – but it is so much easier, faster, cheaper, and more accurate that it, and its successor, will change our world. But how? And what should worry about – with what degrees of urgency? This talk will discuss genome editing’s promise and perils and argue that we are paying too much attention to (some) of its uses in people and too little attention to (some) its uses in the rest of the living world.
