Can Law Reform Solve Surrogacy's Problems?


A public event about surrogacy, taking place at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on the evening of Tuesday 24 September 2019.

Attendance is free, but advance registration is required. Register here.

The event is produced by the Progress Educational Trust (PET), in partnership with the Scottish Government.

It will be chaired by Robert Gilmour, with speakers including Sarah Jones and Dr Katarina Trimmings. Find out more about the speakers here.

Speakers will explore various problems - practical, legal and moral - that people currently have with the practice of surrogacy, in the UK and elsewhere.

Speakers will also ask whether and to what extent law reform - including wide-ranging reforms that are currently being proposed by the Law Commissions of England and Wales and of Scotland - can solve these problems.

In the PET tradition, much of this event's running time will be devoted to letting the audience put questions and comments to the speakers.

Doors will open, and refreshments will be served, at 6pm. The discussion proper will then take place from 6.30pm-8.30pm.

Venue details, including a map, can be found below.
