Abstract

This Article, based on a presentation at a United Nations Environmental Programme and New York State Judicial Institute Symposium, attempts to forecast biotechnology issues expected to come before courts in the future. The Article begins with a discussion of what biotechnology is, provides a survey of past and present biotechnology litigation, and includes predictions about what trends and additional issues are in store for courts in biotechnology litigation and adjudication in the future. The Article concludes with an analysis of, and recommendations for, the use of scientific evidence and expert testimony concerning biotechnology in the courtroom.
