Back to Practice Groups

Welcome to the Life Sciences Practices Group (LS PG). The LS PG is here to help you master the legal, financial, and operational issues that you need to know to meet your clients' needs.

Here are the top three things you can do to make the most of your membership in the LS PG:

  1. Register for a webinar or listen to an archived webinar: Web-based seminars focus on complex and current legal issues, challenges, and developments that impact post-acute and long term care services.  Click here to access a list of upcoming and past webinars sponsored by the LS PG.
  2. Join the Life Sciences Topical Community: Discussion includes food and drug law regulation, third-party payment and reimbursement, fraud and abuse, government contracts, products liability, intellectual property, clinical trials, and research. You are automatically enrolled in the community based on your Practice Group enrollment and/or Preference Center selections.
  3. Check out the Life Sciences PG Topical Library: This is where you can access the most relevant and recent AHLA publications and resources related to your practice area. It's the hub for AHLA content on Life Sciences.

In addition, here are other benefits available to you through the LS PG:

  • News and Analysis: Timely alerts are delivered directly to your inbox—when a new law, regulation, or decision is published, we do the initial legwork and summarize it for you.
  •  Great Opportunities for Involvement: The LS PG leadership welcomes and encourages members to become active participants by writing, speaking, tweeting, serving as a mentor, and taking on other leadership roles. Visit www.healthlawyers.org/volunteer to view available volunteer opportunities.
  •  Task Forces: For those health law topics that cross over several PGs, Task Forces are established to produce collaborative, substantive resources for the benefit of the sponsoring PGs' members. LS PG members are automatically enrolled in

o    Accountable Care Organization, Payment Innovation, and Health Care Reform Educational Task Force: This group provides members with a variety of information and resources relating to accountable care organizations, integrated care models, and other health care reform initiatives designed to improve quality and lower costs, for better population health.

Your clients turn to you, and you can turn to the LS PG for informative and reliable resources to help you stay on top of your practice area. We hope that your active participation in the LS PG will help you meet all of your clients' needs.


 
Summaries of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Advisory Opinions are provided by the Advisory Opinions Task Force of the Fraud and Abuse Practice Group.

  •  Clinical Trial Agreements Tooolkit 
    - Published on March 10, 2016

    The Clinical Trial Agreements (CTA) Toolkit is designed to assist health lawyers with understanding and negotiating clinical trial agreements between industry sponsors and academic medical centers in instances where the industry party is the sponsor of a study involving an investigational drug. The CTA Toolkit is divided into 17 sections that represent key provisions of a CTA and is designed to provide the ideal provisions from both the industry-sponsor and academic medical center-clinical trial site perspective, as well as the reasoning behind those positions. The Toolkit also provides an overview of the business importance of each of these sections; relevant federal, state, or local laws; case law; international laws; other directives and resources; and operational considerations.
