[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] Health Law: Life Science Research Institutions & Companies

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Regulated Industries : Students interested in a career in health law, whether working with health care providers or life science companies, will find this course useful. It examines tort remedies and the regulatory system that has evolved to address harms and risks to health and safety from medical devices and products (among other causes).

General course Description:

Beginning in the late 1960s, American society experienced a dramatic rise in sensitivity to risks concerning health and safety from products and industrial processes. These concerns were recognized in the public sector, where federal legislation reconstituted the regulatory system, and at the same time, the judiciary refashioned tort law for a new era. In the twenty-first century, the ever-dynamic character of regulation and tort has opened new pathways for conflict and complementarity in efforts to reduce risk, compensate victims, and promote economic growth-goals that are not easily reconciled.

This seminarassesses the comparative contributions of regulatory regimes and the tort system by examining both institutional perspectives on agencies and courts and the consequences of a range of concrete efforts to address mass harms such as breakdowns in auto safety, flawed design of medical devices, and the aftermath of 9/11.
