Pierce Law Faculty Scholarship Series

Document Type



Hugh Gibbons has recently completed a four-part series in which he concludes that there are three questions 'about science and technology that are singularly within the province of law; (1) How should technology be employed in the legal process? (2) In what ways should law affect science and technology? (3) Under what scheme should decisions about science and technology be made?' Also, he concludes that these questions should be addressed in law schools. I agree. It would be difficult to determine what should be done in each instance without determining what is being done. Moreover, it would seem to be impossible to address, e.g., the third question without being mindful of various uniquely legal contraints such as those imposed by the Constitution.
