Semester spring semester 2020
Course frequency Irregular
Lecturers Catherine Sharkey (, Assessor)
Content The regulation of pharmaceuticals and medical devices - fields of rapid technological growth and innovation - is a topic of legal, economic, and policy significance. The study of regulation encompasses an exploration of such direct controls as governmental legislation and agency directives and indirect controls like products liability litigation, insurance, intellectual property, and antitrust regimes. The students study how technological advances in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry challenge and demand redefinition of the institutional relationships between agencies and courts, and of the mechanisms of supervision and control provided by the market, government, and common law litigation.
