SLU LAW to Offer June CLE Series
'Emerging from the Pandemic: Legal Issues' will take place June 23, 25, 29 and 30.
This scholarly series examines the current legal issues that have arisen as we emerge from the pandemic. These issues include crossover topics between international law and health law issues, such as technology transfer and vaccines, and a view from New Zealand. Emerging issues in employment law will include employer mandated vaccinations, remote work, and multijurisdictional practice. And our health law scholars will discuss a view of the pandemic from a disability rights lens and a public health framework.
We hope you will join our expert faculty in discussing these important topics that are in the headlines and in front of policymakers.
