Health Law and the Elderly: Managing Risk at the End of Life

Each year, the Widener University School of Law, in cooperation with the Widener Law Review, sponsors a symposium that is held at the Law School. This event brings together national and local experts to speak on various facets of timely legal issues. The expert presentations inspire both solicited and unsolicited articles for publication in a subsequent Law Review Volume.
This year we are proud to present SYMPOSIUM 2010
