Working with the law to promote society’s health
The mission of the Center for Law, Health & Society is to advance the key role that law plays in promoting society’s health. The center engages in three core activities to further its mission:
The center is a catalyst for analyzing and developing laws and policies that impact the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
Our law students and other health-related graduate students are engaged in combining expertise in law, public policy, and ethics with real-world understanding of the complex challenges to health and health care delivery in the 21st century.
The center promotes responsible citizenship through community service initiatives that use law and the legal system to promote society’s health. The center also serves as a nonpartisan forum for robust debate and thoughtful reflection on critical issues at the intersection of law, policy, health, and society.
