The HealthLine Law Journal was launched in 2013 by attorneys practicing in the field of healthcare law. We want to provide opportunities for law students and at the same time provide needed assistance in the healthcare industry. Through the journal, we plan to expose law students to senior management healthcare attorneys working in government, in-house for hospital and clinical healthcare systems, and in law firms. We hope that this will lead to employment opportunities for law students and teach and train the next generation of healthcare legal practitioners.
Federal healthcare laws are on track to become one of the most prolific and complex areas of law in the U.S. Add to this the states’ rights to regulate licensure, operations, and professions relating to hospitals, clinics, physicians, and other clinicians—and you have a double down on healthcare legal requirements. Furthermore, many inconsistencies exist between federal and state healthcare laws, regulations, and agency interpretations. Additionally, healthcare reform is one of the hottest political topics in the U.S. today, and the federal government’s zealous pursuit against “waste, fraud and abuse” is fundamentally transforming the face of healthcare in the U.S., as well as creating tremendous uncertainty in the healthcare industry (a top 3 U.S. industry).
For all these reasons, healthcare law has become the next boom area in legal practice. Despite this, healthcare law is one of the most illusive and misunderstood areas of law in the United States. Healthcare law is complex and extremely interesting, with tremendous diversity in the types of issues, parties, and fact patterns involved.
We would love for you to join our team. Whether a law student or licensed attorney, you can author articles for publication or participate as a member of our editorial board (click here to learn how). Non-attorneys are also welcome to submit articles to the law journal for consideration or to participate as a member of our advisory board. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing. Visit our contribute page to learn how.
The HealthLine Law Journal will be published electronically, in print, on a biannual or quarterly basis (initially), and we have already begun discussions with both WestLaw and LexisNexis in hopes of including our publications in their professional and academic databases. If needed, the journal may transition to a more frequent publication. Print copies of each issue and volume will be widely available in U.S. distribution, including through major distribution channels.
The HelathLine Law Journal offers you an excellent way to publish, become an authority in healthcare law, and distinguish yourself from your peers.
