Sponsored by the American College of Legal Medicine, the National Health Law Moot Court Competition focuses on timely issues relevant to both law and medicine. Among recent topics: whether a state can involuntarily test individuals for sexually transmitted infections and criminalize consensual sexual conduct which transmits HIV from one person to another; whether a state can deny a proxy's request to refuse artificial nutrient hydration from an incompetent patient; whether an emergency room physician's instructions to a paramedic to take a patient to a different hospital violated the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act; and issues concerning asymptomatic HIV under Titles I and II of ERISA and the ADA.
