For the 2018 Moot Beit Din competition, students explored the topic of bone marrow transplant. Students were asked to determine whether Michael, a perfect bone marrow match is obligated to donate his marrow to Judy, who is battling cancer, even if Michael has a blood clotting disorder, which makes donating a health risk. Students also explored whether Michael should be financially compensated, and by who if he chose to donate. You can read the full case here.
