1.5 credits in professional practice – Non-transitional.

Cost: Free to Health Law Section Member, $50 for NYSBA Members, $75 for Non-Members

Presented by the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Health Law Section in partnership with the New York Alliance for Donation (NYAD), and co-sponsored by the Health Law Committee and Bioethical Issues Committee of the New York City Bar.

New York State is facing a health care crisis: the need for transplantable organs far exceeds the availability. While a single donor can help save the lives of up to 8 people, potential donors are rare. It is crucial that all of the participants in the process, legal, clinical, administrative and governmental are knowledgeable about the law and the process surrounding organ and tissue donation.
