Created on May 24, 2021




Surrogacy contracts include extremely complex and sensitive issues that prompt a number of drafting concerns for attorneys. In this program, Colleen Marea Quinn guides attorneys beyond the fundamental considerations surrounding ART contract drafting into the specifics of surrogacy contracts, including in-depth contract language. This course provides a dive into insurance coverage issues, questions about payments between the parties, differentiation between material and non-material breaches, thorny issues around abortion and selective reduction, recent issues regarding COVID vaccinations, and more. The program will explore hypotheticals derived from surrogacy arrangements where things went wrong, and discuss how better contract drafting could have prevented major issues. 

This program is a sequel to the Lawline Program on "Assisted Reproductive Technology Contracts: Drafting Fundamentals."
