Penn College Students Conducting Legal Talks

Pennsylvania College of Technology’s senior legal assistant studies students will be hosting their own series of legal talks at the College. Featuring discussions on current trends and hot topics in the law, the program is part of the bachelor’s degree requirement for the students’ “capstone” course. The talks are free and open to the public; time for questions from the audience will be included.

The series will take place in Penn College’s CoffeeHouse in the Bush Campus Center. The scheduled topics and times are:

  • Monday, May 3; noon to 1 p.m.; Monica Kile, “The Right to Die? Do You Have It?”
  • Tuesday, May 4; noon to 1 p.m.; Mary Ann Johnson, “Physician Peer Review Debate: The Legislative Intent vs. Recent Rulings”
  • Tuesday, May 4; 6 to 6:45 p.m.; Tara Shade, “Athletic Drug Testing: A Critical Look at the So-Called Locker Room Mentality as a Means to Rationalize the Drug Testing of Student Athletes”
  • Tuesday, May 4; 6:45 to 7:30 p.m.; Jody Fisher, “Meagan’s Law: Protecting Our Children or the Rights of the Offender”
  • Tuesday, May 4; 7:30 to 8:15 p.m.; Christine Moser, “HMO Liability for Medical Malpractice: Are You Receiving the Quality of Healthcare You Deserve?”
  • Wednesday, May 5; noon to 1 p.m.; Patricia Harley, “The FDA’s Control on Pharmaceutical Companies: Too Much or Too Little”
  • Tuesday, May 11; 6 to 6:45 p.m.; Jamie Carroll, “Human Cloning: To Clone or Not to Clone That is the Question.”

While each student is able to choose his or her own topic, all are required to complete an in-depth research paper and give a concluding, oral presentation on the results of their work. This year, the students also will publish their works on Penn College’s Web site.
