Center for Law and the Public’s Health

Johns Hopkins Clinic for Public Health Law and Policy

The Clinic for Public Health Law and Policy is an interactive learning experience designed to provide students with an opportunity to address important public health problems that are amenable to law-based solutions. With the assistance of faculty and outside experts, and working collaboratively as a group, students select a legal tool (legislation, regulation, or litigation) and develop products that will facilitate the use of that tool by others. In doing so, the students consult with agencies, practitioners, and advocates. Students, at the end of the course, make a presentation to the agency, practitioner or advocate. The students will develop skills of problem analysis, legal research, legal analysis, legal writing, policy formation, leadership and systems thinking, group interaction, problem solving and public health advocacy.
