National Health Law Moot Court Team

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.
