The Life Sciences Law Review provides an overview of legal requirements of interest to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies. It is vitally important that lawyers who advise companies in the life sciences sector and the business executives whom they serve have a working knowledge of the regulations and policies that govern drugs, biologics and medical devices. It is equally important to keep up to date with developments in the regulatory systems, which govern access to the market, pricing and reimbursement, advertising and promotion, and numerous other matters that are essential to success. It is our hope that this annual publication will be helpful in this respect.
