This course is required for all students enrolled in the University of Houston Law School, Health Law & Policy Institute's LL.M. degree program. It may be taken during the first semester, but could be taken later as well. The course will require each student present a formal lecture on some aspect of health law that is timely, controversial, and relevant to health policy. These presentations should include a well thought out PowerPoint image deck prepared by the student that will be reviewed by the professor prior to the presentation; the presentation will then be written in the form of a short paper for consideration for publication on line. The presentation, the paper, and class participation will constitute the criteria; the class is now graded.

The topic for discussion will be communicated to enrollees prior to class so that they can peruse the article, case, or commentary prior to class and be prepared to better offer opinions and thoughts. The student presenting will lead the discussion and field questions from the other students or listeners; the professor will moderate and intervene as may be required.

The intent of this course is two-fold: first, to look at contemporary issues of health law; and second, to ensure that students who will be seeking employment in health law have a presentation that they may use or modify should they be asked to present as part of their pre-employment evaluation. The class will be open to observers and other faculty members as well as any students who would like to attend without credit, who would like to comment but would be expected to prepare or present.
