Health law 343A guide

This excerpt from Prof Deckha's preliminary course description, 2012-2013 gives context to this guide:

This course will explore the legal issues involved in the regulation of healthcare. In particular, we will look at how the active and absent regulation of medical practices and medical professionals impact the configuration and enjoyment of rights and shape concepts of personhood, citizenship and the idea of health itself. Issues of equality and difference will be central to this course. The course adopts a law and society perspective to consider how health and health-related laws relate to constructs such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation and disability. The seminar will also consider law reform possibilities in health law.
