Mars Travel, Cryogenics, and Body Hacking: Should There Be Limits to Consent?

Professor Nancy S. Kim

Technology has created new ethical and legal dilemmas. This lecture examines the issue of consent to novel, high-risk experiences such as brain implants, cryogenics, or missions to Mars. Technology continues to push the boundaries of what is humanly possible — should there be limits on the ability of people to reach these new frontiers?

Instructor: Nancy S. Kim is the ProFlowers Distinguished Professor of Internet Studies and Professor of Law at California Western School of Law and Visiting Professor at the Rady School of Management at UC San Diego. A nationally recognized expert in the areas of contracts and technology licensing, Kim is the author of Wrap Contracts and The Fundamentals of Contract Law and Clauses.
