Genes and Justice
The Growing Impact of the New Genetics on the Courts

November-December 1999  Vol 83(3)

This symposium issue of the law journal Judicature focuses on the growing societal impact of DNA technology and some of the genetics-related issues that courts will confront in the near future.  Funding for publication of this issue and distribution to judges nationwide was provided in part by the Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues component of the Department of Energy’s Human Genome Program (HGP) as part of its continuing effort to educate and alert the judiciary to the expected flood of genetics-related cases. Several article authors are HGP grantees.
