QUT's ACHLR 11th Annual Public Oration
ACHLR 11th Annual Public Oration
The Australian Centre for Health Law Research annual oration is delivered by leading international experts in health law. In 2023 ACHLR is proud to deliver its 11th Oration presented by Professor Emily Jackson who will discuss Regulating Reproduction. This lecture will revisit some of the themes of Professor Jackson’s 2001 book Regulating Reproduction: Law, Technology and Autonomy, in which she argued that women’s reproductive autonomy should be better protected by the law; has there been progress over the last 22 years; or has there sometimes been one step forwards and two steps backwards.
Emily Jackson is a Professor of Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where she teaches medical law. Emily was previously a Member and then Deputy Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (2003-2012) and a Judicial Appointments Commissioner (2014-2017). She is a Fellow of the British Academy, and in 2017 was awarded an OBE for services to higher education. At the AABHL conference Professor Jackson will give a keynote looking at the regulation of embryo models and/or brain organoids.
