TYL In Focus: Health Law (Digital 2:8)

Health law—a large, complex, and ever-changing area of practice—holds great professional potential for new and experienced lawyers. With this e-book, we take a closer look at ways to start a successful health law career, investigate lesser-known aspects of the Affordable Care Act, demystify the Health Information and Portability and Accountability Act, and survey the subtleties of the laws surrounding medicinal and recreational marijuana. This special edition also covers mental health “patient dumping,” the Anti-Kickback Statute, and the three-headed monster of healthcare fraud enforcement (a particularly unruly beast for the uninitiated). We’ve also included a handy guide to additional resources, publications, and membership opportunities for lawyers with an interest in health law. Available in a variety of handy formats, this latest edition of TYL In Focus is another great addition to add to your digital library. (Published August 2015, copyright American Bar Association.)

TYL In Focus: PopLaw (Digital 2:4)

Popular culture and the law are ready for their close up. The dynamics of the relationship between the two—from how the legal system, lawyers, and judges are portrayed in books, film, and television to celebrity brushes with the law—are a source of endless fascination for many of us. In fact, it’s even possible to find new meaning in our legal system when we look at it through the lens of popular culture. In this edition of In Focus, we examine several high-profile cases involving artists, celebrities, movie studios, and streaming services. We also explore how to best use storytelling in one’s everyday practice and survey the landscape of intellectual property law as it applies to superheroes. This entertaining edition arrives at the peak of award season and is available to ABA members for download in a variety of formats. (Published February 2015, copyright American Bar Association.)
