RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell University's Norman A. Wiggins School of Law will hold its 2009 Campbell Law Review Symposium, "Practical Issues in Health Law" on Friday, Jan. 30, from 8:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Raleigh Sheraton.

The Symposium provides an opportunity for lawyers from Wake County and the Triangle to hear a variety of top speakers and discuss the most recent developments in the area of health care law, regulation and administration, ethics, fraud and abuse, and related topics. The Symposium is intended to provide legal updates and practical tips to attorneys who specialize in health law as well as general practitioners.

This will be the third annual Symposium hosted by the Campbell Law Review. Since the inaugural event in 2007, over 300 North Carolina practitioners have attended and received Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits.

"An important aspect of the Campbell Law Review's mission is to connect with the local Bar on issues of significance to its members," said Matthew Quinn, a third year student at Campbell Law School and editor of the Campbell Law Review. "We are pleased to offer such a strong slate of health law experts."

A number of renowned health law speakers from across North Carolina and the country will discuss the latest issues of relevance to the legal community, including representatives from the U.S. Attorney's Office, University of Michigan School of Public Health, Indiana University School of Law, University of Pennsylvania Law School, John Marshall Law School, Widener University School of Law and Florida A&M University College of Law.

Practicing lawyers from a number of the region's top law firms will also present, including representatives from Poyner & Spruill; Moore & Van Allen; Ropes & Gray; Smith Moore Leatherwood; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom; Yates & Ponton; K&L Gates; Yates, McLamb, & Weyher; and Williams Mullen.

"This year's topic should be of interest to all North Carolina practitioners, especially in light of the new administration and its emphasis on health care concerns," stated Campbell Law Dean Melissa Essary. "We encourage all Wake County attorneys to join us for a day of dialogue and debate on a number of timely issues."
