Inhalt und Aufbau der Veranstaltung:
Course Description:
The regulation of pharmaceuticals and medical devices - fields of rapid technological growth and innovation - is a topic of legal, economic, and policy significance. Our study of regulation will encompass 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. We will 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.
