Description

Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to invite you to a seminar on Wednesday 28 June about Law and Ethics at the Frontiers of Medicine and Science

The recent cryopreservation case In re JS (A Child) [2017] 4 WLR 1 focused attention on scientific advances not covered or contemplated by existing laws, such as the Human Tissue Act 2004. How should courts, regulatory bodies, policy makers and lawyers respond?

Doughty Street Chambers is convening a panel of speakers, including lawyers involved in the JS case and regulators, to discuss whether the current regulatory framework is keeping up with developments in medicine and science in the 21st century.

Speakers include:


  • Aswini Weereratne QC Doughty Street Chambers
  • Kate Beattie Doughty Street Chambers
  • Sarah Bedwell Director of Regulation, Human Tissue Authority
  • Dawson Cornwell Doughty Street Chambers
  • Zoë Fleetwood Doughty Street Chambers



The talks will be followed by drinks and networking.
