Your Osgoode Health Law Association: Let us introduce ourselves…

Hello from your Osgoode Health Law Association (HLA)! The HLA interrogates the area of health law, raises awareness of important health law issues, helps students explore the many career paths in health law, and fosters interdisciplinary collaborations and dialogue between students and health law professionals.

We are excited to kick off this Winter semester with our new committee and some exciting initiatives and events. The HLA held its first bakesale at the end of the Fall semester and raised almost $200, all of which was donated to Doctors Without Borders. Stay tuned for our upcoming events this semester!

We are excited to continue our column in the Obiter! Beginning in this issue, the HLA will have continued its column called Perspectives in Health, reflecting the breadth of the curiosities, interests, and passions of the HLA committee and membership. We’re thrilled to open up the floor to our membership to sign up to author or co-author a column with us this year! If you’re already a member of the HLA and want to sign up for a column, or if you’re not yet a member but can’t wait to become one in order to write a column, email our Editor-in-Chief (contact info below). At the HLA, we’re all health buffs, so if you’d like to brainstorm with us for a column topic, let us know!

The HLA committee has been hard at work organizing events for Osgoode students this year. Here are a few events that are coming up – keep updated in L&L’s emails and in our columns.

Charitable Event – In the works! Date TBA.

Medico-Legal Workshop – In the works! Date TBA.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves! Feel free to say hello to us in the halls and email us to inquire about our column or anything else health law-related!
