June 20, 2022 – University of Houston Law Center Assistant Professor Valerie Gutmann Koch was named a 2022 Health Law Scholar by the American Society of Law, Medicine and Ethics and the Center for Health Law Studies at Saint Louis University.

“I am thrilled to be able to workshop this project with a wonderful community of scholars, and I am grateful for the opportunity to join this community of current and past Health Law Scholars,” Koch said.

Each year four scholars across the nation are selected to participate in a workshop, which provides a forum to discuss in-progress scholarly research on health law or bioethics literature with a panel of experts.

Koch is co-director of the UH Law Center’s Health Law & Policy Institute, a leading health law program at the forefront of legal education and health care policy analysis.

During the last 20 years, HLPI has had more scholars selected for this prestigious workshop than any other health law program in the country. Koch joins UHLC’s previous honorees Leah Fowler (2021), Jessica Mantel (2014), Jessica Roberts (2010) and former faculty member Barbara Evans (2007).
