2016 Health Law Professors Conference

If you are interested in presenting at the 2016 Health Law Professors Conference, please submit a proposal here. If you haven’t submitted a proposal yet there is still time. The deadline has been extended to December 15th.

The 39th Annual Health Law Professors Conference will take place June 2-4, 2016 in Boston, MA hosted by Boston University School of Law. The conference is intended for
professionals who teach law or bioethics in schools of law, medicine, public health, health care administration, pharmacy, nursing, and dentistry. This conference combines presentations by experienced health law teachers with the opportunity for discussion among participants. The program includes plenary and concurrent sessions and is designed to provide updates on issues at the forefront of law and medicine and to provide an opportunity to share strategies, ideas, and materials. 

In addition to the conference sessions, we would like to point out some highlights of the schedule that will surely make your attendance at the 39th Annual Health Law Professors Conference memorable! On Thursday, June 2nd, we will start (at approximately 3:00 pm ET) with the Jay Healey Teaching Session. Following the pre-conference session, there will be a Special Opening Lecture by Don Berwick hosted by the Petrie-Flom Center at Harvard Law School with a reception to follow.

The conference at Boston University includes a full day of sessions on Friday, June 3rd with a “must attend” special event in the evening during which ASLME will present the Annual Jay Healey Teaching Award. Saturday will start with a Boston “mini-marathon” (two mile run/walk) that will start at the iconic Citgo sign and visit the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
