Health and Medical Research for Lawyers
This one-credit advanced research seminar will introduce students to specific sources and strategies for researching a variety of health and medical topics as they pertain to attorneys, including Medicare and Medicaid regulations, medical malpractice, health insurance procedures, etc. We will cover key primary and secondary sources for health and medical law research: state and federal cases, statutes, regulations, and other administrative materials; subject-specific secondary sources; and sources for current awareness in the health and medical fields, among others. As a final project, students will produce a research guide geared towards attorneys on a health or medical topic of their choosing. Grading will be based on this final project and on short in-class and take-home assignments.
