Welcome to JuriScientiaTM!

Law and science are similar in an important respect:  Both of them have an impact on every aspect of human existence.  Science has provided amazing improvements in health, productivity, and the use of the Earth’s resources that have had a tremendously positive effect on human life.  At times, science has also provided technologies that many believe go too far and endanger human life.

This blog looks at some of the areas in which science and law intersect, those areas where the law promotes science or holds it in check, as well as those areas in which the law makes use of scientific developments.
