Utah Law Launches 8th Annual Law and Biomedicine Colloquium

Jan 05, 2022 | LABS

The Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences (LABS) at the S.J. Quinney College of Law recently launched the 8th Annual Law and Biomedicine Colloquium.

This unique learning opportunity brings together scholars, practitioners in the community, law students, and law faculty for weekly seminar-style discussions of complex and controversial topics in the field. Distinguished scholars from other law schools, as well as leaders in legal practice and the biosciences, share their expertise and lead the discussions.

“The colloquium attracts a wide range of law students with differing interests who are excited to be involved in cutting edge research and practice in a wide variety of areas of law and the biosciences—this year, from telemedicine and abortion to biotech solutions to artificial intelligence patent quandaries,” said Professor Leslie Francis, director of the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences.

The colloquium is free and open to the public, with CLE credit available.

The colloquium will kick off with three presentations in January:

January 11 at 3:15 p.m. – (Mis)conceiving Bodies and Minds: Medical Models of Disability and the ADA
Leslie Francis, S.J. Quinney College of Law

January 18 at 3:15 p.m.- Representing Hospitals in a Pandemic
