The Health Law Society was founded in 2005 to introduce Maurer students to the exciting, growing, and expansive field of health law. Health Law Society aims to provide a forum for students to explore the many sides of health law and the impact it has on our communities as well as our careers. This is achieved by offering valuable networking opportunities with professionals working in the field of health law and introducing new ways of thinking about the depth and breadth of the field. HLS will also sponsor several engaging events throughout the year to increase access to health resources, promote healthier and more sustainable living, and provide needed assistance to local organizations, charities, and philanthropies. We invite everyone who would like to be a vital part of building a stronger connection between Maurer Law and health law to join our organization!
Each fall, HLS sponsors the official Movember tournament at Indiana Law. Individual competitors sign up to see who can grow the "best" beard or mustache throughout the month of November. Students who wish to donate to the cause can do so at lunchtime in the lobby. They will receive a pink or blue ribbon to display for breast cancer and prostate cancer awareness. The money raised at the end of the month will be split evenly between charities for the two causes.
If you think you have what it takes to grow the best beard or mustache for charity this year, email Nick Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up. Last year, we raised $1,000 from this event. This year, in 2015, we hope to raise $1,200. We hope you will help us reach our goal!
