BiotechnologyAn LLM in Biotechnology (often called a LLM Science & Technology) focuses on prevailing legal and ethical issues in the discovery chain from the lab to the clinic and includes topics such as genetic choice, genetic privacy, human rights and justice in research, access to health, intellectual property and patents. Beyond the integrated courses that students take, most universities have special institutes for Biotechnology that act as a forum for exchange of ideas between bioscientists, lawyers, bioethicists, policy makers and the biotech industry through regular seminars and conferences.
An LLM Science & Technology provides strict academic and professional training in legal practice and interdisciplinary analysis associated with current developments in law, science and technology, including such areas as e-commerce, jurisdiction and dispute resolution in cyberspace, biotechnology and health science issues, intellectual property regimes and contractual developments related to the global information economy, venture capital, and high technology start-up companies.
Most LLM in Biotechnology or LLM Science & Technology programs are limited to students who have some previous professional experience in the industry. Many schools require that the student demonstrate some previous work experience in the relevant scientific field.
