“The Lopsided Law of Medical Conscience”

Individuals may be used to hearing about conscientious refusers, as when clinicians or institutions summon religion to deny services they deem sinful or wrong. It may be less familiar to hear about conscientious providers, who are compelled to help make patients better, keep them well and relieve their suffering.

At noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, Dov Fox, the Herzog Research Professor of Law at the University of San Diego, will discuss the legality of conscientious providers. 

This event will be open in-person (Moot Courtroom A59) to Case Western Reserve University School of Law students only, but there will be a virtual option available for non-law students. Registration is not required for virtual attendance.
