Legal Compliance Essentials for Drug, Device, and Biotech Companies
January 2-13, 2017
2 J.D. Credits; 15 On-Demand CLE Credits; 15 Regulatory Affairs Certification Credits; 10.8 Compliance Certification Board Credits

Faculty: Dr. Seth Whitelaw, HLI Senior Fellow, Whitelaw Compliance Group, LLC

The U.S. health care system is composed of three primary parts: providers, payers, and finally manufacturers (drug, device, and biotech companies). It is a complex, complicated, and challenging system of laws, regulations, cases, guidance and, in some cases, folklore. This course is designed for the current and future attorney or compliance professional supporting drug, device, and biotech companies. Students will gain a practical understanding of the laws, regulations, cases, and guidance they will encounter in daily practice. Also, upon completion, all participants will understand how to design and operate an effective company compliance program.

From Addiction to Zika: Current Issues in Public Health Law
January 2-13, 2017
2 J.D. Credits; 15 Regulatory Affairs Certification Credits; Applying for 15 On-Demand CLE Credits
Faculty: Jill Krueger, Northern Region Director, Network for Public Health Law

This course explores public health law through the lens of current issues in population health. Prescription drug overdose and the zika virus have captured the attention of both policy-makers and the public, as have topics such as gun violence, obesity, access to care, vaccine refusal, medical marijuana, and smoking. We will examine the leading causes of preventable death, disease, and injury, both in and out of the spotlight. Students will analyze the underlying social, economic, and environmental factors that contribute to or detract from community health and well-being, as well as legal strategies to address those factors. In the process, the course introduces students to the fundamentals of public health law, including those constitutional, statutory, and administrative laws that empower or mandate government to act to advance community health and those that curtail governmental power to do so. more information and to complete the online application.
