Getting Started


Partnering with the American Bar Association Health Law Section Breast Cancer Task Force

All Breast Cancer Legal Advocacy Workshops need to be approved by the American Bar Association. ABA Health Law Section staff will guide you through the process of planning a Workshop and obtaining the necessary approvals. The approval process can be facilitated by contacting Simeon Carson, Associate Director of the ABA Health Law Section, at 312-988-5824 or via email at

All continuing legal education Workshops that list the American Bar Association and/or any of its entities as cosponsors must receive approval from the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Continuing Legal Education. Sena Leach will assist program planners with this process and complete all necessary applications for program approval. Once a program has been approved for program co-sponsorship, the ABA name can be listed on Workshop materials. Program approval can take 3-4 weeks and is the necessary first step in planning any Workshop.

Each Workshop will be assigned a liaison from the ABA Health Law Section Breast Cancer Task Force. This liaison will be able to assist you with program planning, process questions and guide you and your colleagues as you plan your Workshop.
