Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A

Conducted on Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Recorded event now available

This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel for navigating regulatory changes for clinical trials and human research. The panel will examine the practical impact for those sponsoring and conducting clinical trials and will outline compliance strategies to meet the new requirements.


Several important legislative, regulatory and sub-regulatory developments affecting the research community took place in the second half of 2016. These developments include the passage of the 21st Century Cures Act, the issuance of the final rule governing, the publication of a joint guidance document by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Office for Human Research Protections on electronic informed consent, and the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) policy on good clinical practice training for NIH-funded clinical investigators.

Attorneys advising organizations sponsoring, conducting or involved with clinical trials and human research must fully understand the scope and complexity of these developments to ensure clients are in full compliance.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the changes in the regulatory environment for clinical trials and human research. The panel will provide guidance on the new requirements and discuss the impact on organizations sponsoring or conducting clinical trials and human research. The panel will offer best practices for meeting the changing requirements.
