Zack Buck will discuss his paper, “”The Price of Universality: Sustainable Access and the Twilight of the ACA.”
Zack Buck specializes in health law, and his scholarship examines governmental enforcement of laws affecting health and health care in the United States. Most recently, his writing has sought to evaluate how the enforcement of health care fraud and abuse laws impacts American quality of care, with a particular focus on the legal regulation of overtreatment. Over the last five years, his work has been published in the California Law Review, Boston College Law Review, Ohio State Law Journal, Maryland Law Review, Florida State Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review, among others.
In 2017, Buck was recognized as the UT Law Wilkinson Junior Research Professor and received the Marilyn V. Yarbrough Faculty Award for Writing Excellence for his piece, Furthering the Fiduciary Metaphor. In 2013, he was selected as a Health Law Scholar and participated in the ASLME Health Law Scholars Workshop at Saint Louis University School of Law. Buck is also a regular contributor to Bill of Health, a blog maintained by Harvard University’s Petrie-Flom Center, and to the online journal, Jotwell.
Before joining UT, Professor Buck was an assistant professor at Mercer University School of Law in Macon, Ga. He has also served as a visiting assistant professor at Seton Hall University School of Law in Newark, New Jersey, and as an Arthur Littleton and H. Clayton Louderback Legal Writing Instructor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law. He formerly practiced complex commercial litigation at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago.
At UT, Professor Buck teaches bioethics and public health seminar, torts, health care finance and organization, health care regulation and quality, and fraud and abuse.
The Health Law Policy, Bioethics and Biotechnology Workshop, led by Professor I. Glenn Cohen, provides a forum for discussion of new scholarship from leading researchers and opinion-makers in the fields at the intersection of health and law.
Workshops are held on Monday evenings from 5-7 pm, and are open to the public. Copies of the papers will generally be posted one week in advance on the Petrie-Flom Center website. Click here to view the full schedule.
