CFP: Wiet Life Science Law Scholars Conference – Chicago, IL

Loyola University Chicago’s nationally acclaimed Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy will host the Wiet Life Science Law Scholars Conference on Friday, September 6, 2019 at the Philip H. Corboy Law Center in Chicago, IL.

Loyola is currently soliciting 750-1,000 word abstracts reflecting early to mid-stage ideas for the purpose of workshopping full drafts with expert commentators and other scholars.  To ensure effective feedback, the workshop aims to select a maximum of eight scholars. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 24, 2019.

The workshop is designed to provide an intellectual venue for life science professors, scholars, and practitioners to convene and discuss current research and scholarship. The term “life science law” encompasses projects from diverse legal fields where life sciences research and development play a pivotal role, which could include biotechnology, food and drug law, health law, IP, environmental, administrative, criminal, privacy, and antitrust law. Our goal is to foster recognition of life science law as a cohesive, dynamic area of legal study and to strengthen connections among national life science law scholars.

Contact Professors Jordan Paradise or Cynthia Ho with questions about event scope, abstract and draft submissions, and publication opportunity.  For logistical questions, please contact Janie Garb at
