Visiting Assistant Professor
Professor Zack Buck specializes in health law, and is focused primarily on the intersection of, and conflicts between, legal and ethical principles in the contexts of access to healthcare services for vulnerable populations, the state’s limitation of traditionally-protected liberties in the name of public health, and the state’s enforcement of laws and regulations governing the administration of healthcare. Professor Buck joined Seton Hall as a visiting assistant professor in 2011, and currently teaches bioethics, mental health law, and healthcare fraud and abuse. He is a regular contributor to Health Reform Watch, Seton Hall’s health law blog.
Professor Buck holds a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, a Masters of Bioethics from the University of Pennsylvania, and a B.A. with highest distinction from Miami University (OH). Prior to joining Seton Hall, Professor Buck was a litigation associate at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago, where he practiced in the general litigation group, focused on commercial and healthcare litigation. He is a member of the bar of Illinois and is a former Arthur Littleton and H. Clayton Louderback Legal Writing Instructor at Penn Law.
