Unlike many divisions that focus on laboratory research, the Chemistry and the Law division focuses on educating others about issues that arise at the intersection of chemistry and the law.

We have programmed for several years at local, regional, and national American Chemical Society meetings on topics related to FDA regulatory and patent laws as they pertain to chemical industries and technology.  More recently our programming has delved into forensics.

Besides programming at ACS meetings, our division has served the ACS community by running initiatives such as the Legal Evaluation Network, an organization dedicated to matching qualified attorneys with ACS members with legal needs.
