As the nation continues to experience the devastating effects of the prescription opioid epidemic, the Drug Enforcement Administration and its enforcement efforts have been catapulted into the national spotlight. Yet despite thousands of prescription opioid-related deaths each year, DEA's diversion-related enforcement efforts remain an anomaly. The Agency has come under fire for a lack of enforcement, while industry has decried a lack of clear legal obligations for industry to follow.

This course, taught by Hyman, Phelps & McNamara Director Karla Palmer and associate Andrew Hull, explores the DEA's legal basis for diversion-related enforcement and the Agency's administrative, civil, and criminal tools. The course also looks at the recent trends over the last couple of years in DEA's enforcement activities and provides helpful tools for both in-house and outside counsel who represent DEA registrants.
