3rd Annual UM Carey Law Health Law Regulatory and Compliance Competition Draws Top Students from around the Nation

Twelve student teams from around the nation gathered at UM Carey Law February 8 to compete in the 3rd Annual Health Law Regulatory and Compliance Competition, hosted by the Law & Health Care Program. The team from Seton Hall University School of Law took home top honors, with teams from Drexel University School of Law and Catholic University Columbus School of Law placing second and third respectively.

The innovative competition requires teams of students to analyze a particular fact pattern using federal health regulations, rules, and agency documents, and to present a legal and policy solution and/or recommendations to a panel of regulatory and compliance attorneys. 

The areas covered in this year’s competition included:

  • Compliance with NIH and FDA clinical and ethical research issues;
  • Issues relating to electronic health records, meaningful use, HIPAA and the HITECH Act;
  • Antitrust issues;
  • FDA regulatory requirements for drugs and/or medical devices; and
  • Healthcare fraud issues, including kickbacks, Stark, exclusion, and false claims.

The one-day competition allows students to stand in the feet of compliance and regulatory attorneys who work in hospitals, law firms, insurance companies and other settings. At the end of the competition, a panel of attorneys who work in several of these settings noted the great need for legal expertise in compliance and regulatory matters and the advantage students have who focus in this area of the law as students. 

The following law schools participated:

  • American University Washington College of Law
  • Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law Loyola Chicago
  • Catholic University Columbus School of Law
  • Drexel University School of Law
  • Georgia State University College of Law
  • Loyola University Chicago Law School
  • Seton Hall University School of Law
  • Southern Illinois University School of Law
  • University of Maryland Carey School of Law
  • University of Pennsylvania Law School
  • University of Texas School of Law
  • Washington University Law

The UM Carey Law students, Ian Clark, Neal Karkhanis, and Bill Rader, impressed judges with their skilled presentations.

The event was generously co-sponsored by Ober Kaler and supported by Arnold & Porter and Epstein, Becker & Green

Alumus and current Arnold & Porter associate Abe Gitterman ’12, who spearheaded this competition as a student, came back this year as one of the organization’s co-sponsors.
