Abstract

Although the subjects of Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law have been offered in various law schools in many parts of the world, it is not common for law schools in Malaysia to offer these 2 subjects. Instead of offering Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law as specialized subject either at the undergraduate of postgraduate level, many law schools in Malaysia prefer to incorporate components of Bioethics Law and Biotechnology Law in more traditional subjects like Intellectual Property Law and Medical Law. An assessment of law school syllabus at 6 public universities in Malaysia reveals that these components are inadequate to give sufficient exposure and understanding to Malaysian law students regarding bioethics and biotechnology law, especially pertinent bioethics issues.
