The UALR William H. Bowen School of Law will sponsor a free health law program focused on breast cancer on April 26 in the Friday Courtroom.
The continuing legal education program will offer Arkansas attorneys the opportunity to learn more about legal resources for cancer patients and their families, as well as get a tour of the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
â€śPatients of critical illnesses have special legal concerns,â€ť said Dean John DiPippa. â€śWeâ€™re glad to have the opportunity to help facilitate access to greater justice for those individuals and their families by providing this continuing education opportunity.â€ť
Arkansas attorneys can receive 4.5 hours of general CLE credit, but members of the public can enroll in the program as well. To register, visit the ABAâ€™s Health Law Section site.
Sponsors for the event are the American Bar Association â€“ Health Law Section; the Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers; Arkansas Minority Health Commission; Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Arkansas Affiliate; Watts, Donovan, and Tilley PA; and Williams and Anderson PLC.
