‌The annual L. Edward Bryant, Jr. National Health Law Transactional Competition seeks to expose law students to the core competencies of the corporate and regulatory practice of health care law. Held each spring, law students from across the country compete by providing legal advice on a potential business opportunity to a hypothetical health care client in a boardroom setting. This event is endowed and named in honor of L. Edward Bryant, Jr., one of the founders of the field of health law.

Wiet Life Science Law Scholars Conference

The Wiet Life Science Law Scholars Conference is designed to provide a new intellectual venue for life science professors, scholars, and practitioners to convene and discuss current research and scholarship.  The phrase “life science law” aims to capture research and disciplines spanning food and drug law, health law, intellectual property (IP), biotechnology, environmental, administrative, antitrust, and other realms that involve the life sciences in some meaningful respect.  Our goal is to foster recognition of life science law as a cohesive, dynamic, area of legal study and strengthen connections among national life science law scholars.
