Leading legal journal Family Law has published our article (The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008: Revolution or Evolution?) which looks at how the 2008 Act was heralded in Parliament as the first major update of UK fertility law in 18 years, and asks whether it has really made assisted reproduction law fit for the twenty-first century. The article puts the new legislation in context, examining the history of UK fertility law and how it has developed, explaining the changes introduced by the 2008 Act (in particular the new rights for same sex parents which are dealt with in a practical case study) and highlighting some of the remaining problems for fertility patients and parents conceiving through assisted reproduction and in alternative family structures.
