This course examines various legal responses to the new technological challenges created by the advances in life sciences. The course scrutinizes different concepts of privacy from comparative legal perspectives. As law is capable of reinterpreting the already established legal categories in new contexts, we shall examine the privacy aspects of genetic information, the legal issues related to new biosocial identities, and the emerging alternative forms of reproduction.
