Learning level: All levels
As family forms evolve and more and more people access assisted reproductive technology to create families, the law is working hard to catch up. Once a subset of family and estates law, fertility law is emerging as a distinct practice area with its own best practices and challenges.
In addition to offering a primer on the practice of fertility law, this course will explore advances in reproductive medicine, the intersections of fertility law with wills/estates and family law, advanced issues in agreement drafting, cross-border practice and international surrogacies, and all the questions you never thought could be asked.
After taking this program, you will:
- understand who is now considered "family"
- be aware of the medical side of a fertility file
- gain insight into assisted reproductive technology legislation or international fertility files
- understand advanced issues in fertility law and have answers to your questions
- be aware of the intersections between estates and family law
