Description

The William S. Boyd School of Law Alumni Association and the Boyd School of Law presents "Substance Abuse in the Legal Profession and the Affordable Care Act: Clinical and Legal Issues."

This program satisfies the Nevada Supreme Court requirement to obtain one hour of Continuing Legal Education dealing with substance abuse, addictive disorders and or mental health issues as part of the general CLE credits needed in 2013.

Substance abuse, particularly alcohol abuse, is a serious problem among practicing lawyers and law students. A panel of experts will discuss and compare addiction data for the profession nationally and in Nevada; the neurobiology of addiction highlighting recent discoveries related to the interplay between alcohol and individual vulnerabilities; the coverage of mental health, substance use disorder, and addiction benefits under three pieces of federal legislation, as well as mental health benefits that are included and excluded from current Nevada Department of Insurance-approved health plans.
