Medical law and ethics: teaching, research and public debate


King’s College’s Centre of Medical Law and Ethics has established a worldwide reputation for its co-operative interdisciplinary studies which transcend medicine and healthcare, law and philosophical ethics. It provides guidance on many moral questions arising from advances in medical science and medical practice – from the use of aborted foetuses in treatment to genetically modified animal organ transplants. The Centre contributes informed advice to a wide range of governmental and professional bodies.
