Lecture Series: Medical Law

Children and Consent to Medical Treatment with Professor Imogen Goold

This lecture will look at how doctors (and parents) should talk their children about illness. It will also consider what should happen when parents and doctors disagree about what a child should be told. The overall law on consent has changed markedly in England and Wales since Montgomery (2015), and requires doctors to share and explain risks, but it is not clear how far this applies to children, particularly older children.

Law School Virtual Public Lecture - ‘The Contemporary Significance of Rosa Luxemburg’s Socialist Feminism’

Ms Teams

Guest Speaker: Drucilla Cornell, Emerita Professor of Political Science, Comparative Literature and Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University

Chair: Alan Norrie

Synopsis: The great revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg has often been critiqued for some harsh words about bourgeois women. As a result she has been written off as a feminist. But this is far from the case. Luxemburg supported the big feminist issues of her time including universal suffrage for women which was rejected by male leaders of the Social Democratic Party of the Germany. But her feminism is much more contemporary. She is what I call an ethical feminist rejecting any form of organizing that pushes some humans below the bar of humanity. Her critique of all forms of elitism including the vanguard party, her insistence that socialism must challenge all forms of conventional heterosexuality and indeed her commitment to the rewriting of the human relationship to nature should all be considered not only feminist but crucial to thinking about the centrality of feminism to the politics of our time.

Lecture Series: Medical Law

Your Body Parts and the Law with Professor Imogen Goold

Do we own our own body parts? What can we do with them? Can we sell them and control what others do with them? People often say, "it’s my body", but the law is much more complex. This lecture explains the law on body part ownership, tracing it from the early legal cases through the body-snatching years of the Victorian period, to the present day. Should we use the law of property to regulate human tissue?
