I am a bit late in posting this, given that the class started Aug. 26, but it is not too late to join in.

The University of Iowa College of Law is offering free online access this semester to a colloquium on the health care reform act. Starting Aug. 26 and ending Dec. 2, class sessions are presented live every Thursday from 2:20 to 4:20 p.m. Central Time (except Thanksgiving). Anyone who wishes to participate in the live class can register and log in through the university’s Elluminate system.

Class sessions will also be videotaped and put online afterward, along with PowerPoints and other supporting documents. The material will be available for download from the colloquium page.

The class will analyze legal issues presented by the  new health care policy with professors and experts from UI and elsewhere. They will analyze the law from the  perspectives of economics, human rights, antitrust, insurance, employment, poverty and the Constitution. CLE credit is available in some jurisdictions.
