welcome to The Health Law & Ethics Research Group
We aim to engage in topical health law and ethics research and teaching from a uniquely South African perspective, and to impact on the South African, African, and global health law and ethics landscape.
On an undergraduate level, we present bioethics as an elective to LLB students. On a postgraduate level, we offer a research LLM, and coursework LLM in Medical Law, and a research PhD. Our undergraduate course in bioethics is typically taken by about 100 students every year.
Our main areas of interest are
- Reproductive law & ethics
- Children’s rights – research, reproduction
- New technologies & health care
- Fair contracting in health research
You are welcome to email any one of our Research Group members directly, or email us at Group leader Dr

We are always eager to explore possibilities for collaboration, or potential postgraduate projects.
