An educational discussion of Ohio’s medical and legal landscape after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v Wade
CLEVELAND, July 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — What liabilities do attorneys, health care providers, companies and firms face as Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization becomes part of our legal system? What are the nuances and pitfalls of this incredibly complex ruling? What do attorneys and other professionals need to know as they begin to advise their clients about working within the boundaries of this landmark case?
The U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v Wade opened a Pandora’s box for attorneys, physicians, hospitals, clinics – and women all over Ohio. From genetic testing, IVF and ectopic pregnancies to rape and incest, medical personnel, health care administrators, parents – and their attorneys – now face unprecedented legal questions and perils.

The first half of this symposium will address legal issues related to medicine, procedures and effective legal representation.
