Indy Bar: IndyBar Health Section becomes the “Health Care and Life Sciences Section”

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indianapolis Bar Association’s Health Care Section was recently rebranded as the Health Care and Life Sciences Section. This section has long served attorneys representing local health care systems and providers by coordinating educational opportunities and maintaining a professional forum for information sharing and collaboration.

Recent growth in the Indiana life sciences industry provided the group with an ideal opportunity for expanding its focus to include complementary legal issues of interest to practitioners in the life sciences. A natural nexus exists between the health care and life sciences sectors in Indiana. Whereas one focuses on the delivery of health care and the other focuses on the development of new medical technologies, attorneys in both sectors share common interests in regulatory law, business transactions and intellectual property.

“We’re confident that this rebranding will help us to broaden our scope in terms of programs and resources offered to section members, and we’re hopeful that we will welcome new members to the section as a result of our expanded offerings,” says Colleen Powers, of Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman PC and current chair of the section.

Expanding the subject matter priorities of this group to address these shared interests will allow for richer educational offerings and increased opportunities for collaboration and relationship-building.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
