Please join us for Hot Topics in Life Sciences Law, a symposium presented by Mayer Brown and the Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy, Seton Hall Law School.

The symposium will explore emerging issues and legal trends impacting the life sciences industry, including:

  • Cybersecurity threats and responses
  • Return on investments: acquiring new drug products
  • Embracing technology advances: AI, blockchain & automation
  • Internal investigations in light of #MeToo

Participants will include in-house counsel, academics, members of the judiciary, and industry representatives.

Our program will feature an interactive cybersecurity incident tabletop exercise in which members of Mayer Brown’s Cybersecurity & Data Privacy team, along with representatives from CrowdStrike and Brunswick Group, will present a fictional cybersecurity breach scenario. Participants will explore critical legal, computer forensics, and communication issues and gain valuable insights to take back to their companies.
