Professor Jo Manning

Compensation for research-related injury in the UK, Australia and New Zealand: A legal and ethical audit


You are warmly invited to the Inaugural Lecture of Professor Joanna Manning.


Leading bioethicists, national commissions, and leaders of the medical profession around the world have argued that society owes an ethical obligation to compensate for research related injury, and that no-fault compensation is the best ethical response.

In this lecture Professor Joanna Manning will assess existing compensation arrangements in place for research-related injury in publicly-funded and commercially-funded clinical research in the UK, Australia and New Zealand (in particular) against this ethical expectation.


Joanna Manning is a Professor of Law at the University of Auckland, where her teaching and research interests lie at the intersection of health law, bioethics, and health policy.

She is a contributing author of the leading New Zealand treatise on health law, Skegg and Paterson (eds), Health Law in New Zealand (Thomson Brookers, 2015) and the editor of The Cartwright Papers: Essays on the Cervical Cancer Inquiry 1987-88 (Bridget Williams Books, 2009). She is also author of more than 60 journal articles and book chapters on issues such as patients’ and research subjects’ rights, informed consent, complaints, discipline and compensation, and the rationing of scarce healthcare resources.

She served as the consumer representative on the Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for around 10 years, and as the lawyer members of the National Ethics Advisory Committee and the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Heart Foundation NZ, and is a member of the Cartwright Collective.
