American Bar Association House of Delegates Update: Spring 2015

The House of Delegates adopted recommendations that may be of interest to healthcare litigators.

By Grant Killoran

At the Midyear and Annual Meetings of the American Bar Association (ABA) each year, the House of Delegates meets to consider policy initiatives proposed by the various sections of the ABA. Many of these proposals come from the Section of Litigation and the Health Law Section. The House is the policy-making body for the ABA and is made up of 560 members representing state and local law associations, ABA entities, and ABA-affiliated organizations.

The House again convened at the ABA Midyear Meeting in Houston, Texas, on February 9, 2015, and considered a number of recommendations, including those reprinted below, that may be of interest to health care litigators and to young lawyers.
