“Seton Hall Law’s compliance program sets the standard for excellence in the delivery of compliance insight and knowledge, delivered by key industry leaders, in an environment that allows for an open exchange of ideas, opinions, and best practices. The knowledge I gained is easily transferable in my daily service as an Integrity Officer, but sustainable in having discovered new colleagues who share the same goal: the search for excellence. Seton Hall’s compliance program rises above any option you may have when seeking new or current compliance knowledge based upon the reputation that only Seton Hall can offer.”

“This four-day, in-depth and interactive conference hit on every topic I need to know about in my practice of law. The conference is extremely well-run and organized. All of the expert speakers represent the top of the international and national healthcare compliance, legal, and science development fields. The level of professional and industry expertise Seton Hall Law pulls together for the conference is extremely impressive.
