Elisabeth Haub Law School Hosts Summit on Health Law and Policy


This week, Elisabeth Haub Law School at Pace University will host a health law and policy summit, “Unblurring the Lines in Healthcare: Understanding Key Legal Issues for Operations and Transactions and for the Delivery of Care”, for lawyers and non-lawyers.

Haub law professors will clarify healthcare practice for lawyers and healthcare professionals seeking to address day-to-day challenges in operations, transactions, and care delivery, as well as emerging issues. They will discuss how health care organizations can meet their current responsibilities, prepare for public health challenges, and seek more equitable health policies.

Increasingly, healthcare professionals need a solid understanding of the policy and regulatory environment in which they operate. These professionals need to be equipped to deal with growing health equity and human rights challenges. They must also understand how to advise on transactional and compliance matters, and how to influence public policy.

The event will take place the morning of May 18 at the Haub Law Campus, Judicial Institute of the State of New York, 78 N. Broadway, White Plains, NY.

The event, sponsored by Pace University College of Health Professions and the Westchester County Association, is open and free to all. For attorneys, it offers New York State Attorney CLE credits: 2.5 for practice and 0.5 for ethics. Participants can join in person or via Zoom. To register for the event, please click here.

Following the registration period and a networking breakfast, Steven J. Chananie, Special Counsel Sheppard Mullin, will deliver a keynote address on navigating the health care system. Chananie is a Haub Law graduate and former adjunct professor.

Next, the panelist will discuss issues presented in business transactions involving healthcare companies. They will explore the lifecycle of a business transaction and the legal implications for lawyers and professionals working in the field, including mergers and acquisitions, modes of care delivery, compliance and enforcement.

This is followed by a panel discussion on ethical and legal issues related to the provision of patient care. Panelists will discuss current issues in patient care, including lack of access to care, long-term care workforce issues, and end-of-life rules. They will also address bioethical issues related to technological advances in reproductive and genetic technologies.

The closing speech will close the event at noon. For a more detailed schedule of panels, click here.

Professor James Toomey, Climenko Scholar and Associate Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will moderate both panels and join Haub Law School as an assistant professor in the fall of 2022.

Distinguished panelists include Barbara Atwell, Haub Law Associate Professor; Lauren Breslow, assistant professor of law at Haub; Margaret M. Flint, Haub Law Professor of Law Emerita; Linda Martin, Haub Law Assistant Professor and Chief Compliance Officer at CareOne; and Dale C. Van Demark, partner at McDermott Will & Emery and adjunct professor at Haub Law.

The event features Haub law professors who are also part of the law school’s Advanced Certificate in Health Law and Policy, a part-time, fully online program created to help lawyers and non-lawyers navigate in the world of healthcare law, policy and compliance by developing knowledge and leadership skills. Applications for the certificate program are open for fall 2022. Click here for more information.
