Leslie Francis

Film Editor and Featured Contributor

Leslie Francis is a philosophy professor and law professor at the University of Utah. Her fields include applied ethics of all types, disability, philosophy of law, and law and health care. She is the editor of the Oxford Handbook of Reproductive Ethics and co-author of Privacy: What Everyone Needs to Know and Sustaining Surveillance: the Ethics and Politics of Public Health Data Use (both with John G. Francis). Her overall approach to philosophy involves thinking about what matters in contexts of injustice; movies are a great laboratory for this. Movies have been part of her life since she met her husband John at Michigan; her daughter is now a wardrobe stylist and costume designer in Hollywood.
