- The Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records requirements under Part 2 must be amended to incorporate groundbreaking legislation under the CURES Act more closely aligning the stringent requirements for SUD patient records with the streamlined HIPAA requirements
- Multiple unprecedented changes are in store for Part 2 including anti-discrimination provisions, loosening of protections to align more closely with HIPAA, heightened barriers for use in proceedings, and modifications to Part 2’s traditional downstream application to non-Part 2 providers and payers

- What can law firms do to make sure that attorneys of color are not only hired … but actually set up for success?
- How can we better mentor and sponsor attorneys of color in their careers?
- While many corporate counsel/in-house departments are making demands of law firms to improve diversity, what and how can law firms and corporations partner together to CREATE opportunities to hire and promote diversity throughout the legal profession?
