Moot Court Event on "Obamacare"

Posted By Vikram Amar, Mar 12, 2012

I’m heading to Los Angeles tomorrow to take part in a special moot court event on President Obama’s sweeping health care reform legislation.  UC Davis School of Law is a co-sponsor of the event.  Here are the details:

Tuesday, March 13
6:00 - 7:30 P.M.
The California Endowment - Yosemite Hall
1000 North Alameda St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Just two weeks before the United States Supreme Court hears oral arguments on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, The California Endowment, Southern California Public Radio, and distinguished law schools are bringing together a bipartisan mix of renowned legal minds and policy experts to hear and argue the case that will decide the health status of millions.  

The moot court event will offer an exclusive look into the highly anticipated U.S. Supreme Court case Department of Health and Human Services v. State of Florida by specifically examining the lawfulness of the Affordable Care Act's minimum coverage requirement.
