Concordance Of International Regulation Of Pediatric Health Research, Ellen W. Clayton, Mark A. Rothstein Jd, Et Al. Jan 2023

Concordance Of International Regulation Of Pediatric Health Research, Ellen W. Clayton, Mark A. Rothstein Jd, Et Al.

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

International, multi-site, pediatric health research has shown great promise by vastly increasing the amount and heterogeneity of biospecimens and clinical records. However, considerable impediments are created by the significant costs and delays associated with obtaining regulatory approval in numerous countries, which is often complicated by varying and sometimes opaque research ethics standards and procedures. Although it is unlikely that the global community could reach consensus on a single set of research ethics policies and procedures, voluntary policy pronouncements by countries agreeing to defer to the approval of research ethics bodies in other countries might be a way forward.

Deference is …

Commentary On Consumer Protection Act, 2019, Ashok R. Patil

Books

The development of new technology in the form of e-commerce and the increasing integration of global markets and supply chains have changed the way consumers interact with the marketplace. This has given rise to new challenges for the consumer, and the existing consumer protection framework falls short in dealing with them.

And A Public Defender For All, Sara Mayeux May 2022

And A Public Defender For All, Sara Mayeux

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

The Senate confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court last week means that she is soon to be the first Supreme Court justice with prior experience as a federal public defender. This is historic in its own right, though it is not quite as surprising on closer inspection, since the institution of the federal public defender — in its currently prevailing organizational particulars, anyway — dates back only to the 1970s. Still, given that several of the justices previously worked as federal prosecutors, Jackson’s confirmation injects a welcome measure of professional balance to the lineup. Moreover, Jackson can …
