Health Law Scholars Weekend 2017
Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 8:00am to Saturday, October 14, 2017 - 4:00pm
The Center for Health Law Studies at Saint Louis University and the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME) are pleased to announce the 2017 Health Law Scholars Workshop.
The Health Law Scholars Workshop is a collegial forum in which faculty new to health law and bioethics scholarship present works-in-progress and receive in-depth advice from experienced scholars and teachers in the field of health law and bioethics. The workshop encourages health and bioethics scholarship, fosters the professional development of emerging scholars and furthers the sense of community among health law academics.
Past scholars have placed their papers for publication in preeminent law journals. Scholars workshop their work-in-progress before a group of experienced peer reviewers and commentators. Each author’s work-in-progress accepted for the Health Law Scholars Workshop will be read in advance by several faculty members in relevant fields. During the workshop weekend, each author presents his or her paper to the full group. After extensive oral feedback from the readers, the floor is opened for a sustained exchange between the presenter and full group.
The workshop draws health law and bioethics scholars from across the country, inviting senior faculty from a variety of law schools and disciplines to review the works-in-progress and participate in the weekend. The workshop also draws on the expertise of Saint Louis University faculty from the Center for Health Law Studies, Saint Louis University's School of Medicine, School of Public Health, School of Nursing and Center for Health Care Ethics.
