Belmont Law Review

Volume 2, Issue 1 (2015) Symposium 2014: Healthcare In the Balance: Balancing Competing Interests in Modern Health Law

Editor's Preface

The Belmont Law Review was officially established in 2012. The Law Review is the annually published student-managed, student-edited scholarly journal at Belmont University College of Law. In addition to publication, the Belmont Law Review hosts an annual symposium on a topic significantly impacting the legal community. This publication marks Belmont's second symposium, given in October 2014, on the subject of Healthcare in the Balance: Balancing Competing Interests in modern Health Law.

The Belmont Law Review is committed to both engaging in and facilitating useful legal discourse. Members of the Law Review will seek to contribute to the legal community through meaningful intellectual conversation while conducting themselves with the highest standards of professional and ethical responsibility.

The Law Review would like to express our gratitude to the excellent attorneys and professors who contributed their respective works for publication in this volume. It has been a pleasure to work with each of you. We also wish to thank the faculty, staff, and administration of the College of Law for their vision and encouragement in the establishment of this endeavor. We are particularly indebted to Professor Jeffery Usman, without whose tireless effort and wise guidance this volume would never have been published.
