Elon Law Review invites submissions for its 2024 Symposium -

The Doc Is In: Prescribing Treatment for the Health Crises Through the Legal System

Access to healthcare, the Opioid Crisis, mental health, environmental impacts–the law has come to play an increasingly important role in the world of public health. This role continues unabated. How will Big Pharma be impacted by judgments regarding the Opioid Crisis? What laws govern the capture and disposal of “forever chemicals” and ensuring environmental public health? Can the law help control health burdens caused by climate change? Will law firms adapt to mental health research concerning the legal profession? Are there implications of antitrust laws in hospital mergers? What is the impact of tribal self-governance on federal health care funds? The Elon Law Review invites submissions for our Symposium exploring the intersection of law and public health as a means to solve these challenges and more.

The Fall 2024 Symposium will be held on Friday, September 20th, 2024 with a reception the evening before on Thursday, September 19th, 2024.
