Assisted Reproductive
Technology: A Lawyer's Guide
to Emerging Law and Science

Charles P. Kindregan and
Maureen McBrien

Product Code 5130139

This book is a unique summary of the evolving legal issues and solutions which characterize the current state of assisted reproductive technology (ART) law and science. There is no nationally recognized law on the subject, although some kinds of ART have been in use for decades, and there have been hundreds of court decisions on various issues growing out of ART services.

This book draws from multiple legal sources, including court decisions, statutes, uniform laws, and the legal literature to provide a comprehensive view of each topic.

To order today, call the ABA Service Center at 800-285-2221 and request Product Code 5130139 or order online.
