Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The 43rd Annual Health Law Professors Conference will remain scheduled for June 3-5, 2020.

 As of now, the 43rd Annual Health Law Professors Conference will still take place at Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, MA on June 3-5, 2020. We are closely watching the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and will communicate any future updates and/or schedule changes. We will continue to monitor travel restrictions and public health advisories, and will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health authorities.   

We will not be offering livestreaming and/or videoconferencing for this event. 

We are hopeful that there will be no restrictions on travel or meetings in June, but we understand that the situation might change. If that happens, or if any registrants are unable to travel due to the outbreak, we will provide information regarding refunds. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Katie Johnson at
