Due in large part to the Center's strong national reputation, students are exposed to some of the best legal minds in the country and have access to renowned scholars and practitioners in the area of health law.
Distinguished Speaker Series
Throughout the academic year, the Center hosts several leading scholars and practitioners who shape health law and policy. Students have the opportunity to attend keynote lectures and then meet with the speakers to discuss timely health law and policy issues during small group sessions.
Annual Health Law Symposium
Each spring the Center hosts its annual Health Law Symposium featuring leading experts and scholars in the field. Conference topics focus on groundbreaking issues in health law and policy. The proceedings of the symposium are published in the Journal of Health Law and Policy.
Health Law Scholars Workshop
The Center for Health Law Studies and the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics host the annual Health Law Scholars Workshop each fall at SLU LAW. This collegial forum allows faculty new to health law and bioethics scholarship to present works-in-progress and receive advice from experienced health law and bioethics scholars.
The Practitioner-in-Residence program allows the Center to host a visiting health law attorney for several weeks each year. Students benefit from access to the practitioner through guest lectures, round table discussions, office hours and special events featuring the practitioner.
