In an era of significant national and regional challenges and reforms in health care and public health, practitioners and students must be able to identify, assess, and solve legal, ethical, and policy issues at the intersection of health care delivery and protection of community health. As the cornerstone of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law’s nationally-ranked health law program, the Center for Public Health Law and Policy brings together students and leading scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to address critical issues in law, ethics, policy, and the public’s health.
The depth and breadth of topical issues explored through the center are profound. They range from national health care reform, communicable disease control, human subject research protection, emergency legal preparedness, obesity and injury prevention, health information privacy, and vaccination law and policy.
The center also hosts the Western Region Office of the national Network for Public Health Law, funded in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Led by Professor James G. Hodge, Jr., the Western Region Office provides technical assistance and other resources to public health practitioners, officials, attorneys, and advocates across 11 Western states and nationally.
Students interested in an array of health law issues may select from a diverse range of courses and additional opportunities led by acclaimed faculty, adjuncts, and partners. Student experiences are accentuated through concentrations, certifications, and joint degrees offered through ASU Law, Mayo Medical School, and other collaborators. Timely knowledge and application of principles of law, ethics, and policy offer graduates significant career opportunities in high-demand fields of health law and public health law in government and the private sector.
