“We’re proud of our students for participating and for the success that they achieved. We look forward to competing again next year, and we thank the Health Law Society
for supporting our students,” said Assistant Dean and Executive Director of Institutes
Eileen Grena-Piretti of the group of law students who recently competed in the inaugural University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Health Law Regulatory & Compliance Competition held on March 28th, 2012.
Students Dan, Baum, Nathan Carr-Whealy, and Stephanie Uses comprised the three-person team, and fellow students Jessica Williams and Tiffany Coleman, as well as Assistant Dean Grena-Piretti, accompanied them. The competition challenged the students to apply federal health regulations, rules, and policies to a hypothetical problem involving a federal health agency.
“It’s a great learning experience to be able to make a presentation quickly, and also to learn what the judges expect for those of us who will be competing in the future,” said Nathan Carr-Whealy.
“It was a good experience to see how healthcare and the law are intertwined,” added Stephanie.
