In Malaysian law schools, bioethics and biotechnology law are taught

Abstract

Philip Fischer*

Although Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law have been taught in a number of law schools around the world, these two subjects are not typically taught in Malaysian law schools. Many Malaysian law schools would rather incorporate elements of Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law into more conventional subjects like Intellectual Property Law and Medical Law than offer Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law as specialized subjects at the undergraduate or postgraduate levels. An examination of the law school curriculum at six public universities in Malaysia reveals that these components are insufficient to provide Malaysian law students with sufficient exposure to and comprehension of bioethics and biotechnology law, particularly pertinent bioethics issues.
