About the Committee
The Healthcare and Life Sciences Law Committee is rooted in legal issues arising within healthcare sectors throughout the world as well as affiliated interest areas within the life sciences arena. In this regard, it is concerned with those fields of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms, with a special focus on all aspects of healthcare law, including such areas as medicine law, intellectual property, biotech, bioethics, regulatory issues and scientific developments, on a worldwide basis.
The Healthcare and Life Sciences Law Committee is a fast-growing committee with a dynamic and diverse membership across the globe.
The challenges the industry is facing today, a growing competitiveness and regulatory changes demand that we work together to deepen and develop this area of practice with a prominent place in our environment. This is essential to provide our clients with services rendered by highly trained quality professionals.
In this regard, the committee provides a forum of discussion among health and life Science lawyers, and aims to provide regular updates of important changes in this ground. This allows transversality of knowledge and experience, making use of the benefits of globalization and allowing that the developments and accomplishments obtained by those who exercise their profession in countries where life Science practice is more advanced are seized by those who have just started their journey in this area.
This exchange of knowledge and experiences will be at its height in the conferences and seminars organised by our committee within the IBA, or in the events in which our committee participates. The exchange enriches those who participate and directly collaborates with development and professionalisation of the practice area at the global level.
Additionally, the Healthcare and Life Sciences Law Committee works with the following committees to form the Law and Individual Rights Section:
