Save-the-Date: 2023 Jaharis Symposium

Save the Date

Each year, the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute, in collaboration with the College of Law's Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®), explores a critical legal issue at the intersection of health law, intellectual property law and information technology. 

This year's program is no exception as we dive deeper into the role and impact of technology on the radical changes to reproductive health care law after the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Supreme Court decision. This topic lends itself to the interdisciplinary nature of our symposium, as we gather a wide range of academics, legal practitioners and health care professionals to discuss the challenges and opportunities involved with this significant issue.

The Symposium's four panels will focus on:

  • Data Privacy
  • Responsibilities of Fertility Medicine Providers
  • State and Federal Regulation of Contraceptive Care
  • The Future of Reproductive Research

We also are very excited to announce Radhika Rao, Professor of Law, UC College of the Law, San Francisco, ​ as our featured speaker.  She will share the historical legal context that informs the direction of reproductive health care law in the future.
