Institute for Information, Health and Medical Law

The IGMR was established in 1998 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Bremen. The Institute concerns itself with legal science, practice and policy issues of the regulation of health and information law. The central concern of the Institute is the intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary development of an approach responding to the challenges of a modern health and information society.

  • promotion of cooperation of different fields of legal science and other branches of science, i.e. medicine, ethics of medicine, health and information sciences and health economics
  • promotion of young academics
  • integration of scientific and practical activities through cooperation initiatives (scientific transfer)
  • consulting services for associations and political institutions on current problems of health and information law
