Legal professionals who work in areas where law, science, and technology converge, don't need a PhD to effectively represent their clients, but they do need a grounding in how science and technology are integrally related in today's society. Understanding how science works enables a lawyer to assess how a scientific discovery or technological innovation affects a client's interests. This book provides an easily understandable explanation of particular sciences and technologies by analyzing specific cases. The book examines the question "What is science?" through two different lenses-the scientist and the legal practitioner. The text focuses on the important role that definition and interpretation play in framing the legal issues dependent on science and technology. Subsequent chapters cover genetic engineering, communications tech, forms of technology protection, Patents and transformative technology, issues in biotech, and much more.
