My legal career would not be what it is without my membership in the ABA Health Law Section. The friendships, generosity, and knowledge that I developed through the Health Law Section first helped me establish a new practice area in healthcare when I was at a firm and now enrich my experience as a General Counsel. Additionally, involvement in Section leadership provides me with an opportunity to give back to others by hopefully continuing the same experience for others that I have enjoyed.
Maintain Your "A" Game
If you are like me and your practice involves representing either healthcare, pharmaceutical, DME, or similar providers or health plans, you owe it to yourself to be a member of the ABA HLS. Joining will make it so much easier for you to stay abreast of the fast changing policies, regulations and market trends related to this practice. There is no better source. Membership will also allow you to meet and interact with your peers, clients and potential clients. Even though I work at a global firm with a strong focus on health care, it is nearly impossible to maintain an “A” game in health law without this kind of support and networking opportunities. It is certainly the highlight of my professional practice and we would love to have you involved. If your practice involves health law, please consider joining the American Bar Association’s Health Law Section.

The first word that comes to mind when I think of the Health Law Section is “congeniality.” As I work at a small consulting firm, having access to a community such as the Health Law Section has been an invaluable resource. Section members are so welcoming and kind, and they have been unfailingly gracious with their time and knowledge. Despite coming into the Section as a young lawyer, I have been consistently encouraged to speak up and contribute, and my ideas have been championed by fellow section members. The opportunity to work with experienced attorneys who are leaders in their field has given me an incredible amount of confidence in my professional life and has unquestionably help me advance in my career.

The main work of the Section is done through its Interest Groups (IGs). These groups advise the Section of important new issues and events in its area of interest and assist the Section on policy positions and in providing comments on regulations and proposed legislation with respect to matters within its area of interest. They also provide opportunities for participation by Section members, by creating a forum for interaction and networking by IG members in the area of shared interests.View All - Interest Groups
