 The Australasian Association of Bioethics and Health Law (AABHL) is Australia and New Zealand’s leading organisation concerned with issues of bioethics and health law.


AABHL encourages those with a professional interest in the relationship between law, bioethics, health care, public health, and global health governance, to become members. Its members come from many health and law disciplines, and include clinicians, lawyers, academics, government policy analysts and community activists.


Membership of the AABHL provides a focus for those with interest or expertise in specific areas of bioethics to develop educational and research collaborations.  AABHL members are kept informed of current developments, relevant events and opportunities through regular notices and the website.


Benefits of membership include:


  • opportunities to collaborate with similarly interested professionals and with other bioethics organisations at annual conferences, at local workshops and events, and through involvement in AABHL streams that foster discussion about Clinical Ethics, Health Law, Teaching Ethics and Research Ethics.
  • a free subscription to the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry (JBI), an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal published by Springer and co-sponsored by AABHL. One of the world’s leading journals, the JBI provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for bioethics scholarship and is a source of up-to-date legal and policy developments from around the world.
  • a 25% discount on other titles published by Springer Press.
  • discounted member rates to attend the annual AABHL conference which attracts national and international experts in bioethics and health law, and provides opportunities for members to present their work and discuss their ideas with others engaged in the field.
