SCHOOL OF LAW

ANATOMY FOR LITIGATORS

Course 0999 Section 021 

Professor Samuel D. Hodge, Jr. and Virginia Graziani Lowe, M.D., J.D.

Writing Intensive – Hybrid Format

 

Lawyers are trained to recognize or defeat theories of liability. That, however, is only a part of a claim. Medical issues, such as causation and damages, play an equally important role, but most attorneys are not educated in medical matters. This places them at a distinct disadvantage when cross-examining a healthcare professional, trying to explain a medical matter to the jury or making sense out of medical records.

This course is designed to help law students better understand medical issues. Anatomy for Litigators will deal with the nuts and bolts attorneys need to know in understanding medicine. Students will receive an overview of human anatomy while being exposed to how the systems of the body work individually and collectively as a unit. Litigation tips will be offered throughout the course

You will also have the opportunity to engage in a few unusual field trips. For instance, you will go to the Anatomy Lab at Temple Medical School where you will explore the human body in the dissection lab and you will make rounds with health care professionals at Temple Hospital.
