It's my pleasure to welcome my friend David Orentlicher into the faculty lounge. David is the Samuel R. Rosen Professor of Law and Co-director of the William S. and Christine S. Hall Center for Law and Health at Indiana University's Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where he teaches in health law, constitutional law, professional responsibilty, and trusts and estates, among other areas. He has also held visiting professor positions at Princeton, the University of Iowa, and the University of Richmond. From 2002 to 2008, David served in the Indiana House of Representatives from 2002 to 2008. His emphasis in the legislature included making health care insurance more affordable, increasing the pool of venture capital for new businesses, and ensuring better protection of children from abuse and neglect.
David, who holds both medical and law degrees from Harvard, is also one of our nation's foremost scholars of health law. He is the author of Matters of Life and Death: Making Moral Theory Work in Medical Ethics and the Law (Princeton University Press, 2001) and co-author of Health Care Law and Ethics (Aspen, 2007), as well as numerous articles. You can read some of his recent scholarship on ssrn here.
Very much looking forward to hearing David's thoughts about health care and all manner of other things, too.
