Pharmacy Law for California Pharmacists attempts to make the law more comprehensible than it appears from reading the statutes and regulations themselves, while not oversimplifying what are often complex regulatory schemes. Questions and examples are provided. This book is a required or recommended text for the mandatory Law and Ethics courses at leading California schools of pharmacy.
This seventh edition of Pharmacy Law for California Pharmacists was written by Marsha N. Cohen, J.D., Professor of Law at UC Hastings College of the Law, who specializes in food and drug and administrative agency law and was a two-term member of the California State Board of Pharmacy and its first nonpharmacist president, and Sami Sedghani, Pharm.D., J.D.,a pharma and patent litigation associate with the national law firm of Latham & Watkins who, prior to law practice, was a hospital pharmacist at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center, where he was responsible for clinical medication management, including review and monitoring of medication regimens of patients with complex disease states. It benefits from the comprehensive knowledge of the late William L. Marcus, co-author of the first six editions, who was counsel to the California State Board of Pharmacy for 19 years as a deputy attorney general with the California Department of Justice.
