Significant Changes in Healthcare – 2016 CLE Seminar - May 3 - Jackson
Seminar Brochure and Agenda
The Health Law Section will host "Significant Changes in Healthcare – 2016" on Tuesday, May 3 in Jackson at the MS Bar Center. The field of Health Care Law is constantly evolving as major new statutory and regulatory changes seem to be issued almost every week.  At both the state and the federal level, legislators and regulators are constantly modifying the regulatory framework which attorneys must navigate to advise clients.  Practitioners must be diligent in staying abreast of these changes, as failure to comply with the increasingly harsh and complex web of state and federal regulations can lead to draconian penalties and even prison time!  No matter what area of law you practice, it is likely you will encounter at least some area of healthcare law which will impact your clients. This 6.0 CLE credit seminar, including one hour of ethics credit, will cover some of the current major changes occurring in the field.
