9.26[J] Principles and Applications of Genetic Engineering for Biotechnology and Neuroscience


Class Info

Examination of the relationship between law and technological change, and the ways in which law, economics, and technological change shape public policy. Areas addressed include how law can be used to influence and guide technological change; responses of the legal system to environmental, safety, social and ethical problems created by new or existing technology; how law and markets interact to limit or encourage technological development; and how law can affect the distribution of wealth and social justice.
