Health Care Law Seminar - Law 801
Professor Vernellia R. Randall
The University of Dayton Law School
This past year has resulted in historic state settlements
with tobacco companies and historic ligation wins by plaintiffs. Will these
settlements/litigation wins result in better control of tobacco hazards?
This seminar will explore the current state of tobacco marketing, laws,
regulation and litigation. The product of this seminar will be a draft
of a co-authored paper which analyzes state efforts post settlement to
address issues of targeting of Children, Women and Minorities. Each student
will research the status of settlement efforts in selected states and write
a thorough scholarly analysis about those efforts. As a part of the class
participation, you will provide critical critique of each other's work.
We will then publish our analysis. For the result of a similar class project
see: Section 1115 Medicaid Waivers: Critiquing the State Applications 26
Seton Hall L. Rev. 1069 (1996). This paper was co authored with seven
students: Sally Giess, Gabrielle Boller, Cornelia Tinkler, Shalonda Bayless,
Andrew Romero, Stacey Henry, Charles Whipple. Since publication it has
been cited in six law review articles.
