Created to support UVic LAW 387 (or LAW 343 (Contemporary Issues) Health Law. Also useful for researching health law in other contexts.
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.
This content in this guide is loosely structured according to the foregoing LAW 343 course description and many of the chapters and themes in the core text: Canadian Health Law and Policy, 5th ed. [Downie]
