Contest Overview

Without the technical insights provided by members of the healthcare and life science communities, attorneys would not be able to effectively seek justice for their clients. From prescription drug and medical device torts to intellectual property disputes surrounding proprietary biological research, healthcare and life science professionals have become an essential part of American justice. In recognition of these vital contributions to the practice of law, The Expert Institute is offering a $1000 scholarship to students in medicine and the life sciences.
