The 2007 University of Memphis Law Review Symposium, Rethinking Medical Liability: A Challenge for Defense Lawyers, Trial Lawyers, Medical Providers, and Legislators, was held on February 16, 2007, at the University of Memphis FedEx Institute of Technology in Memphis, Tennessee. The Symposium brought together scholars and practitioners to assess the traditional malpractice system and quality of care. Americans are engaged in an earnest and profound debate about how to improve and rethink medical liability and improve the quality of medical care. The Symposium presentations and the resulting articles in this issue not only advance the ongoing debate but also offer a number of fresh ideas on the subject.
