About the Competition:

The competition requires teams of 2-3 JD candidates to analyze a hypothetical fact pattern involving various interactions between health care stakeholders and entities participating in health care activities that necessitate regulatory and compliance oversight. The fact pattern is given to teams the day of the competition, and students have approximately 1.5 hours to analyze the problem. Teams present their findings and recommendations to a panel of practicing regulatory and compliance attorneys representing a broad range of organizations including law firms, federal government, private industry, and large health care providers. Teams will have the chance to improve their legal research, presentation skills, and substantive health law knowledge, while having the chance to network with students from across the country and leaders in the health law field. The 2023 competition will also have an emphasis on food and drug law, as well as other topical health law concepts.

If you would like more information about the competition or have any additional questions, please email Rebecca Hall, Managing Director of the Law & Health Care Program, at r.hall@law.umaryland.edu.
