Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

Do we own our own body parts? What can we do with them? Can we sell them and control what others do with them? People often say, "it’s my body", but the law is much more complex.

This lecture explains the law on body part ownership, tracing it from the early legal cases through the body-snatching years of the Victorian period, to the present day. Should we use the law of property to regulate human tissue?

We are live-streaming all our lectures in 2021-22, or you can attend in person.
