Center for Law and the Public’s Health

Johns Hopkins Clinic for Public Health Law and Policy

The Clinic explores the role of law and policy as a tool to advance public health. Using current and compelling public health problems, students engage in an experiential learning process. Clinic students examine legal doctrines, frameworks, and protocols that shape strategies for advocacy and policymaking. They have the opportunity to develop the practical skill set necessary to assess the likelihood for success of potential legal and policy interventions in solving public health problems. Through the Clinic, students will learn from legislators, regulators, litigators, and public health experts to propose and implement feasible legal and policy solutions. The Clinic was featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Johns Hopkins Public Health Magazine.
