Introducing Judith Daar

We’re excited to welcome Judith Daar, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law at Whittier Law School, as an occasional contributor to the blog.

In addition to her roles at Whittier, Judy also holds an appointment as a Clinical Professor at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine.  From 2009-11, Judy served as president of the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics, where she continues to sit on the board of directors.  She also serves as a member of the Ethics Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, authoring and updating several published reports on topics of clinical concern in reproductive medicine.  Her law school teaching includes courses in Property, Wills & Trusts, Bioethics and Reproductive Technologies and the Law.  In 2006, Judy published the first, and to date the only, casebook in the field of assisted reproductive technologies, Reproductive Technologies and the Law (LexisNexis 2006). A second edition of the book is forthcoming at the end of 2012.

She has spoken extensively on legal, medical and ethical issues in reproductive medicine, including giving testimony to the National Academies of Science and the California legislature.  Her scholarly work includes over 100 book chapters, articles, white papers and editorials on a range of topics including prenatal genetic testing, human reproductive cloning, regulation of reproductive technologies and malfeasance in the provision of assisted conception services.  She is the recipient of two Outstanding Teaching Awards and was named the Harry S. Zekian Scholar in 2008. Judy has taught as a visiting professor at UCLA School of Law, Loyola Law School and the University of Houston Law Center.  In the Spring 2013, she will visit at UC Irvine School of Law.
