About the Program
As Canadians increasingly turn to assisted human reproduction (AHR) procedures to help build their families, more lawyers need to ensure they have a basic understanding of this growing area of client need. Once the niche of only a handful of fertility law specialists, today lawyers in every practice area, including family law, estate planning, employment law and contract drafting, are encountering clients with reproductive technology-related legal issues. This webinar will create the necessary awareness for practitioners in every field to inquire about and better address matters relating to collaborative reproduction they may come across in their practice. Family health law™ lawyer Lisa Feldstein will provide an overview of common assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and terms, discuss who uses ART and the multiple participants that may be included in a child’s birth, and explain the regulation of ART and surrogacy in Canada, and what courts have done when faced with difficult questions of ART. In addition, she’ll offer practical advice for anyone considering building a fertility law practice or adding fertility law to their existing practice. Topics include:
- Common assisted reproductive technologies
- How ART and surrogacy intersect with succession, parentage, incapacity and other legal topics
- The risks of remaining unaware of ART-related legal issues in your practice
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to acquire a basic comfort level with this rapidly growing and ever-changing area of law.
