Please see our program schedule.

Which compliance program is right for me?

Each Compliance Program offered by Seton Hall Law was created for and tailored to a different audience and each has an independent advisory board.

  1. East Coast: Our U.S. Healthcare Compliance Program (HCCP) was established in 2004, and is offered twice per year in New Jersey. It is ideal for medium to large life sciences companies. The HCCP's content, discussions, and exercises are geared for companies that have a mature and fairly robust corporate compliance program in place that falls under the direction of a chief compliance, ethics, or integrity officer.
  2. West Coast: Our new U.S. Life Sciences Compliance Program (LSCP) is currently offered once per year in California. The LSCP's content, discussions, and exercises are tailored toward smaller, newer, and maturing life sciences companies (including start-ups) that may have few or no full-time compliance or legal officers, or have limited resources currently devoted to corporate compliance. Some of these companies may have few, if any, FDA-approved products on the market, and are in the process of growing their national and international footprint.
  3. Both Programs:
    1. Provide a strong legal and ethical foundation for compliance and legal professionals;
    2. Offer opportunities to meet with and learn from other life sciences professionals;
    3. Offer practical insights into how to identify and address life sciences compliance risks and build effective compliance programs; and
    4. Provide a certificate to each attendee upon completion of the program.

Who should attend?

Pharmaceutical and medical device professionals in compliance, legal, regulatory and medical affairs, sales, marketing, grants and related areas, as well as outside counsel who represent healthcare companies.  The Program is recommended for those who would benefit from an introduction (or an update) to the complex set of laws, regulations, and issues affecting the drug and device industries and the government's approach to monitoring and prosecuting violators. It is not recommended for chief or senior compliance officers who are experts in compliance matters.

Who are the faculty?

Program faculty include high-level government lawyers from Federal and state enforcement agencies, private lawyers from leading firms, and in-house compliance officers and legal counsel with expertise in compliance matters. A Seton Hall Law professor from the Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy participates in each Program.
