Title: Propreity Right to Resolve Current Ethical and Legal Dilemmas
Authors: Laura, Feldman
Advisor: Lisa, Austin
Department: Law
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2010
Abstract: This paper will analyze how a model based upon propriety concepts, specifically the conditional gift, could be utilised to address the current limitations of the legal safeguards that have traditionally been used to protect individuals’ contributing to medical research. The paper outlines three benefits of using the concept of the propriety right in the form of a conditional gift to reform medical research. Firstly the conditional nature of consent embodied in the conditional gift, secondly the persistent nature of rights held in immovable and movable contributed material and finally, the ability to use conditional contribution to distribute the rights of researchers and the participant as well as to ensure that beneficial medical research can continue. The essay will conclude by showing that the conditional gift model may not the only way to reform current legal safeguards; yet it may be one of the best candidates for the role.
