Call for Papers

​The DePaul Journal of Health Care Law, Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute, and Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®) are excited to announce a Call for Papers in connection with the 2022 Jaharis Health Law Symposium. 

This year’s topic, “Antitrust and Access to Care: Lessons from Market Consolidation and a Public Health Crisis,” will explore how consolidation across health care markets has impacted access to care. Prominent legal scholars, antitrust enforcers and expert practitioners will address a range of questions through four separate panels focusing on health insurance, pharmaceutical, hospital and digital health markets. 
 
Three papers will be selected from the submissions.  Each selected author will receive a $500 honorarium and their article (of approximately 10,000 words) will be published in the Symposium issue of the DePaul Journal of Health Care Law. Full article drafts will be due by June 1, 2022. 

We are open to a wide range of topics consistent with the Symposium theme but are particularly interested in papers from scholars with diverse experiences and backgrounds researching health insurance or pharmaceutical markets, as well as papers from junior scholars. 

The Symposium will be held both in-person and remotely at DePaul College of Law in Chicago on March 10, 2022. Presenters able to appear in person will receive reimbursement for reasonable travel expenses.
 
Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to asetrini@depaul.edu by January 15, 2022, with the subject line “Jaharis Symposium: Call for Papers.” You also may submit an optional statement of no more than 500 words describing how your selection would enhance the diversity of the Symposium.
