New Attorney General to Keynote Seton Hall Law Opioid Conference



A one-day symposium devoted to promising strategies to tackle the opioid epidemic in New Jersey. Speakers and panelists will describe programs for vulnerable people at risk of harm from opioids by employing care coordination and innovative care transitions.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal will provide keynote remarks. The symposium is open to the public and co-hosted by the Seton Hall Law School’s Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy, its Circuit Review, and its Legislative Journal.


Thousands of citizens continue to die each year from opioid overdoses, and many more are at risk because they are unable to find care in the community when they are in crisis or are transitioning from one level of care to another. This conference will bring together policymakers, caregivers, and advocates to discuss innovative programs that seek to stem the tide of opioid addiction and overdoses by implementing strategies to connect patients to care across the continuum.
