Health Law Section

One of the newest MBA Sections, the Health Law Section reflects the importance of the health care industry in Memphis. The section works closely with the Institute for Health Law and Policy (iHeLP) at the University of Memphis Law School, and hosts an annual speed networking event for law students. It also offers CLE seminars on cutting-edge topics, ranging from the Affordable Care Act to issues affecting local healthcare entities.

Dues are $15 per year. Law students may join for free.
