Abstract

This article considers genetic exceptionalism and the law, seeking to address the unparalleled questions for law raised by the advent of genetics, including what role should the law play; which interests should the law reflect; and should law react to scientific advances on an ad hoc basis or should a more principled, proactive approach be adopted to regulation.
