2. First Annual Conference on Law, Ethics, and the Life Sciences

Friday, October 26, 2007, 12:00pm through October 27, 2007, 1:00pm University of Louisville School of Law
Sponsored by the University of Louisville School of Law, University of Louisville Center for Land Use & Environmental Responsibility, and Stites & Harbison PLLC
$150 for those seeking Kentucky CLE credit; free to general public

The University of Louisville's First Annual Conference on Law, Ethics, and the Life Sciences will bring together scholars from law, environmental science, information technology, health sciences, bioethics, and other disciplines to consider their disciplines' connections as well as their divisions.

Half a century ago, C.P. Snow identified a debilitating clash between competing literary and scientific cultures. To this day, abiding cultural divides cripple public understanding of a wide range of scientifically sophisticated issues, from global climate change and biodiversity loss to childhood vaccination, embryonic stem cell research, contraception, abortion, and end-of-life decision making. This conference aspires to span all of these subjects, and others, without regard to internal boundaries within law, ethics, or the life sciences. Environmental law, health law, food and drug regulation, biotechnology, law and behavioral psychology, and evolutionary analysis of law share a common scientific core. The best path toward understanding that core lies in embracing the similarities among these disciplines and their legal, ethical and regulatory counterparts.
