(202) 326-6008 |

NAGTRI and the Center for Ethics and Rule of Law (CERL) at the University of Pennsylvania Law School are co-sponsoring this high-level, one-day event to focus on possibilities for civil, criminal, and regulatory solutions to stem the morbidities and death from the opioid crisis. The agenda includes health care professionals, lawyers, legislators, psychologists, and scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss recent developments as well as the implications for legal and policy reform. Participants will address questions that affect each of their professional communities in different, but interrelated ways.

Civil litigation suits are only one possible solution. There is also attention currently on both the problems of opioid addiction and the mental health crisis in the veteran community. Following the conference, CERL will produce one or more briefing papers to address legal and regulatory solutions to the crisis along a number of domains – criminal prosecutions, civil suits and increased regulatory oversight and management.
