Constitutionality of Medicare Drug Price Negotiations

Duke University School of Law, Durham, North Carolina

General Description: Currently, the Biden administration's Medicare price negotiations proposal is being challenged.

She will explain the legal basis behind the challenges, discuss the likelihood judges will be sympathetic to pharmaceutical companies' arguments, and answer any questions from the Duke Law Community.

Expected Attendance: 55-65 people (students, faculty, and administrators)

RSVP Status: Professor Shachar has confirmed she is available to speak on October 4 from 12:30 to 1:20.
