This book provides a rich body of materials for courses in bioethics and law. Primary legal sources, including judicial opinions, statutes, regulations and institutional policies, will give students insight into the strategies used by courts, legislatures, agencies and health care providers in addressing bioethics issues. The book also draws from interdisciplinary research in medicine, ethics, and law to provide students diverse critiques of legal and public policy issues in bioethics. Materials in this text are tightly edited and designed to create high quality and focused classroom discussion. In particular, the text includes classroom tested problems that will engage students more deeply on each issue. In addition, notes and questions in each section provide information and queries that will broaden the students' understanding, and bibliographical notes will assist students who want to do more advanced work on particular subjects.
