Summary

This chapter considers the meaning and role of interdisciplinary approaches to research and teaching in medical law and ethics, itself an inherently interdisciplinary field. It notes that formidable challenges persist, however, especially when navigating methodological and conceptual differences across disciplines, and operating outwith a disciplinary ‘home’. The chapter looks at how complementary strands of diverse specialisms can come together to create the constellation of critical tools needed to address contemporary legal, regulatory and ethical challenges in medicine, health care and the biosciences. In the three case studies, the authors examine the contribution of multi- and interdisciplinary approaches to pedagogy, critical scholarship and the production of practical research outputs, and how these have informed and influenced their own work, with and alongside that of Graeme Laurie. Throughout, the discussions highlight the myriad ways that his research and teaching exemplify the openness of spirit and the intellectual curiosity required to engage meaningfully in interdisciplinarity.
