Section Spotlight: Health Law Section

As the current Chair of the Florida Bar’s Health Law Section, I would like to invite interested members of the Young Lawyers Division to join our Section.  The Health Law Section is over 1800 members strong with an Executive Council composed of some of the finest health law attorneys in the state.   Our focus is on the many legal issues that impact health care in our state and nation.  As today’s health care issues grow in number and complexity, the need for knowledgeable and experienced health care attorneys has never been greater.   Membership and participation in the Health Law Section is an ideal opportunity for newly admitted attorneys to gain a better understanding of health law, refine practice skills, and develop significant working relationships with other health care attorneys and professionals.

As a member of the Section, you will be given full access to the Section’s wide-ranging continuing legal education (“CLE”) programs and news materials. The Section hosts several in-person CLE seminars during the year, covering topics ranging from health law fundamentals to recent developments in the areas of fraud and abuse, compliance, risk management, and representation of licensed practitioners. The Section also hosts a series of monthly audio webcast CLE programs, allowing health care attorneys and other professionals to keep abreast of the law from the convenience of their own offices. Additionally, the Section offers members electronic quarterly newsletters and monthly health law updates containing practice related articles.

For further information on our upcoming functions and activities, please take the time to explore our website at www.flabarhls.org, or join us at any of our upcoming Executive Council meetings.  These meetings are open to prospective members, and are an excellent opportunity for networking and socializing with other attorneys in your field of interest.
