Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Florida Bar Health Law Section. Currently, the Section has just over 1700 members who are involved in or interested in the practice of Health Law. Although the Section has seen continued growth in recent years, there are a significant number of attorneys that devote at least some portion of their practice to Health Law who are not members of the section. We hope to change that.
Traditionally, one of the biggest benefits of being a member of the Health Law Section has been access to the Section’s educational offerings. The Section hosts several in-person full day CLE seminars as well as shorter more frequent web- based training opportunities. Additionally, the Section offers its members a quarterly newsletter containing practice related articles and monthly Health Law Summaries, both of which are emailed to Section members.
Over the last several years, the Section has sought to reach out to younger lawyers who practice in the area of Health Law. The 2014-2015 year will mark the Section’s second year of having formal young lawyer representation via the Section’s Young Lawyer Division. As the practice of Health Law continues to grow we hope to become a valuable to resource to our young lawyers as well as take advantage of their energy and ingenuity.
During the 2014-2015 year one of the major efforts of the Health Law Section will be to reach out to our membership to learn how the Section can better serve you. The Section is committed to helping its members but we need your input and direction.
Finally, to our current members I say thank you, to those that are not yet members I invite you to join. I look forward to being able to serve you during my 2014-2015 term.
