About the Center

The Johns Hopkins Center for Law and the Public’s Health enhances the effectiveness and visibility of law as a tool to protect and promote the public’s health. Center faculty explore innovative uses of the law and conduct legal and empirical research in diverse areas related to public health, often working closely with policymakers and public health practitioners.

The Center also engages in education, training, collaboration, dissemination of information and the translation of research findings, and serves as a resource for practical and scholarly information about public health law.
