The announcement below is for the University of Richmond Law Review’s Fall 2011 Allen Chair Symposium:
Everything But the Merits: Analyzing the Procedural Aspects of the Healthcare Litigation
November 11, 2011
Ukrop Auditorium, Robins School of Business (Queally Hall)
School of Law Moot Court Room
Each year, the Allen Chair Symposium explores a single topic of national interest. This year, working in collaboration with Professors Carl Tobias and Kevin Walsh, the University of Richmond Law Review presents the 2011 Allen Chair Symposium entitled “Everything But the Merits: Analyzing the Procedural Aspects of the Healthcare Litigation.” This year’s symposium focuses on the procedural and litigation issues that have permeated numerous challenges to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. While much of the attention has focused on the constitutionality of the legislation, lawyers litigating these cases had to address critical issues involving the role of states as litigants, the distinction between facial and applied challenges, severability, and other issues. The symposium will bring lawyers and scholars together in order to explore these all too important procedural issues; so join us and be part of this important discussion!
If you are unable to attend the symposium in person, please feel free to participate via the live webcast. Information for the live webcast will be available on November 11, 2011 at 7:30 A.M. E.S.T..
