Call for Papers: Posthumous Reproduction 

The Journal of Law and Health (Cleveland-Marshall College of Law) invites submissions for its annual symposium, The Legal and Ethical Implications of Posthumous Reproduction. Abstracts are due Oct. 1, 2012; the symposium is tentatively scheduled for March 2013.

Recently, in Astrue v. Capato, the Supreme Court held that children conceived through in vitro fertilization after the death of a parent were not automatically entitled to survivor benefits under the Social Security law. The Court stated that the children’s eligibility to receive the benefits depended upon their ability to inheritance under the state’s intestacy system. The symposium will explore these issues and more.

Please submit a 600-word abstract describing your topic and a copy of your curriculum vitae by October 1, 2012, to Journal of Law and Health at Please include “Submission: Annual Symposium” in the subject line.
