Health Law From 30,000 Feet By Gregory J. Naclerio



Let me be clear: There is no such thing as “Health Law.” Rather, health law is the practice of civil and criminal litigation, administrative, corporate, contract, employment and any other field of law that impacts the delivery of health care. As it is the goal of this paper to provide the fundamentals of a health law practice to newly admitted attorneys, the topic will be discussed at a macro level with cites and other guidance to help you get down to the micro level you need to be at in order to practice any area of the law.

The health law bar is relatively small and most practitioners are available to help new attorneys learn the craft – after all, that’s how we did it. The Health Law Section is the youngest and fastest growing section of the Bar Association and provides various services including a “ListServe” where members share issues confronting their practice and our health law blog, Supraspinatus (Attachment 1).

The practice of health law is heavily sprinkled with acronyms. You need to learn these shortcuts to understand the conversation and convince the client you are a health law attorney. It’s only by speaking to other health law practitioners and attending CLE’s devoted to health law that you will be able “to speak the language.” While none of us intended to be physicians, you will need to know about the basics of the practice of medicine and of the particular subspecialty your client practices.
