Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
This Centre was founded in 1986 by the Faculties of Medicine, Religious Studies, and Law, with subsequent participation by the Department of Philosophy. Its mission is to undertake and promote transdisciplinary research, teaching, and community involvement in a broad field that includes health law and bioethics. The Centre's members are involved in a wide variety of activities including clinical and research ethics consultations to McGill teaching hospitals, governments, and other institutions. The Centre established a program for graduate students to undertake their master's studies in law (and also in experimental medicine, philosophy, or religious studies) with a Specialization in Bioethics in which Centre members, from the participating faculties including the Faculty of Law, act as thesis supervisors.
