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 7, 2018.

Conference Objective

The conference is designed to provide an intellectual venue for life science professors, scholars, and practitioners to convene and discuss current research and scholarship.

The phrase “life science law” intends to capture diverse disciplines that involve significant issues of life science research and development, spanning food and drug law, health law, intellectual property (IP) law, biotechnology law, environmental law, administrative law, and antitrust law.

Our goal is to foster recognition of life science law as a cohesive, dynamic area of legal study and strengthen connections among national life science law scholars.


The deadline for 750-1,000 word abstracts, including author contact information is May 15.

Submit with subject line Wiet Life Science Law. Scholars will be notified of speaker selections by email on or before June 15.
