Center for Law and the Public’s Health


The Center for Law and the Public’s Health explores innovative uses of the law through legal and empirical research in diverse areas related to public health. Our faculty frequently work closely with policymakers and public health practitioners at the local, state, and federal levels.

As part of its research agenda, the Center produces multiple resources of use to public health, legal, and other stakeholders. These resources include fact sheets, legal memoranda, slideshows, policy analyses, and peer-reviewed scholarly articles. The projects described in this section have been funded by a variety of sources. Center publications, faculty research publications, and information for the general public are available on this website or by contacting the Center directly.
