About Our Section
The Health Law Section has over 1,100 members who practice or are interested in the many areas of law affecting access to and the delivery of health care.
The Health Law Section hosts educational conferences annually in January and October and offers periodic CLE programs which provide its members resources to better serve their clients, including updates on hot topics and legislative changes. It also supports its members through Committees which specialize in specific areas of health law.
Each Committee provides further education in the area of the Committee’s expertise. The Committees also provide the opportunity to comment on pending legislation, draft proposed legislation and network with local and national experts.
