The Cambridge Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences (LML), led by Dr Kathleen Liddell (Director) and Dr Jeffrey Skopek (Deputy Director), advances research and teaching on legal and ethical challenges at the forefront of medicine and the life sciences.

One of the centre’s core aims is to bridge science and law—to complement the world-class biomedical research being conducted at the School of Clinical Medicine, Cambridge Biomedical Campus, Cambridge Science Park, and Cambridge University Health Partners, ensuring that the medical and life sciences develop in responsible and effective ways.
LML works closely with other centres at the Faculty of Law, HSS-Bio (a network of Cambridge academics in the social sciences and humanities who are interested in biomedicine), the Centre for Medical Ethics and Law at Hong Kong University, and the PHG Foundation.
