Stephen Latham

I am Director of Yale’s Iterdisciplinary Center for Bioethics. I write about the full range of bioethics issues from assisted reproduction to assisted suicide, both from the philosophical and from the legal perspective. I teach mostly Yale undergraduate courses, some of them philosophical and some concentrating more on bioethics-and-law. I teach at Yale Law and at the School of Management on occasion, as well. Before coming to Yale about a decade ago, I was a professor of health law at Quinnipiac Law. I’ve lived in New Haven since 1999, and two of my three children were born here. All three of my children went to Neighborhood Music School’s preschool, and all three took instrumental lessons there for many years (violin, flute, guitar, ensembles). My wife, Fiona Scott Morton, and I have both taken instrumental lessons at NMS, as well, so the whole family is grateful to—and devoted to—the place. It’s exciting to see the school’s programs expanding and diversifying. BA, magna cum laude, Harvard College JD, cum laude, Harvard Law School PhD, UC Berkeley (Jurisprudence and Social Policy)
