The Centre for Health, Ethics and Law (HEAL), part of the University of Southampton Law School, is pleased to welcome Professor Jonathan Montgomery on 7 May 2015.

Professor Montgomery, of University College London, will draw on his wide experience of bioethics governance bodies and will lead a lecture around the topic of Bioethics as a Governance Practice.

The nature and scope of bioethics has been long debated. Some see it as a descriptor of a field of study; covering topics such as research ethics, death and dying, genetics, reproductive technologies and behavioural control. Others suggest it is an academic discipline, perhaps with its roots in moral philosophy. Others still suggest that it is an academic enterprise bringing to bear a constellation of disciplines to make sense of issues in the field. These issues and more will be discussed and debated at the University of Southampton Highfield campus on 7 May at 18.00.

Lecture organiser, Associate Professor A.M Viens says, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Professor Montgomery back to Southampton to deliver the inaugural annual lecture for the Centre for Health, Ethics and Law. His contribution to the development of health care law, both academically and in his public service, is unrivalled in the UK. In recognition of these contributions, the annual lecture series will be named in his honour.”

No registration required, spaces are on a first come first served basis. The lecture will take place in Lecture theatre A, the Nuffield Theatre (Building 6).
