Justice Daphne Barak-Erez, Justice on the Supreme Court of Israel, will deliver the Annual Bernstein Lecture in Comparative Law titled "Battles of Reproductive Technologies: Comparative Tales." The lecture will discuss landmark cases on controversies in the area of IVF law, using examples and models from several jurisdictions, thus exploring the potential contribution of comparative analysis to this area of law. More specifically, the analysis will distinguish between two "types" of litigation in this field - horizontal (between two private parties) and vertical (between individuals and the State) - mainly focusing on horizontal litigation and pointing to the judicial approaches used in this context, as well as to the relatively modest contribution of legislation to this area of law. Lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Co-sponsored by the Center for International & Comparative Law and the Office of the Dean.
