As a foundation, students begin with an overview of healthcare law and an analysis of the sources of law to include the Constitution, statutes, regulations, and case law. Throughout the course, students will objectively analyze constitutional issues and major federal healthcare laws and will further delve into regulations implementing statutes as well as cases interpreting them. Students will examine the intersection of traditional areas of law and healthcare to include torts, antitrust, contracts, and intellectual property. They will explore the contemporary and emerging areas of information and innovation in healthcare law as well as the Affordable Care Act, to include the Supreme Court’s landmark decision. The course concludes with a consideration of the pervasive problem of fraud, waste, and abuse. This course is delivered in a seminar style with significant independent work/research on the part of students and should be taken after introductory and concentration courses.
