    Millions of uninsured people in the United States have the right to receive emergency medical care thanks to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Signed into law by President Reagan in 1986 and still in force today, EMTALA provided the first limited federal right to health care regardless of ability to pay. In this survey of EMTALA, we dissect the “golden rule of the emergency room” and introduce the major statutory and regulatory mandates, as well as case law interpretations thereof. In that vein, we also cover hot-button issues and present some of the top compliance challenges for hospitals.

    Public support for legalized cannabis is at an all-time high, and at least 33 states have legalized it in some fashion. In light of the booming cannabis industry and the significant regulatory challenges that cannabis-related businesses face, the need for legal advice is industry-wide. However, giving cannabis-related legal advice can raise some hazy ethical issues for attorneys, due in part to the continued illegality of cannabis at the federal level. In this presentation, we will examine both the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and a selection of state rules and opinions as we work through the ethical implications for lawyers who don’t stay off the grass.
