 Are you up-to-date on all of the changes in Fertility Law?

Fertility law is increasingly complex, even for the experts who practice it daily.  With the new regulations and the constantly evolving legal landscape, counsel must ensure they are up-to-date and knowledgeable on the latest legal decisions, as well as legislative, jurisdictional and procedural changes.

Over one day, let OsgoodePD’s experts get you up to speed on the key current and emerging issues.

Topics will include:

  • Drill down on the new regulations under the Assisted Human Reproduction Act – The key changes and what they will mean for you and your clients
  • Insurance Pitfalls and How To Dodge (or Manage) Them
  • Implications for embryos, eggs and sperm upon death or separation
  • Constitutional challenges in fertility law – what’s on the horizon
  • Advising hospitals: best practices and pitfalls to avoid
  • When things go wrong… How to avoid and navigate the common (and not so common) pitfalls

PLUS:  Get a grounding in the basics of Fertility Law with our online primer, Fertility Law: Understanding the Key Concepts.  Available on demand January 6, 2020.
