The University of Southampton
Health Ethics and Law (HEAL)

Areas of interest

Our core members hold expertise across the fields of health ethics and law. We take a variety of critical approaches to understanding and analysing law and policy, including from moral, philosophical, political, and regulatory perspectives.

Through a range of large, on-going projects, national and international interdisciplinary research collaborations, and individual research endeavours, we focus on a diverse range of practical and theoretical questions at the intersection between health ethics and the law. Examples are projects relating to: Covid-19 (the role of Human Rights law) and public health law and ethics, healthcare and criminal justice, bodily organs, post-mortem privacy rights and transplantation, reproductive and sexual health and rights at national and international levels, medical-professional ethics and the ‘hidden law makers’ behind test cases.
