Journal of Contemporary Health Law and Policy:

The Journal is a professional legal periodical that focuses on a comprehensive range of health-related issues. Articles, notes, comments, and book reviews traditionally cover areas associated with modern health care, bioethics, environmental law, and medical practice. Published annually, the Journal reaches domestic and international subscribers.

The Journal exposes student editors and staff to the substantive areas of health law and provides an excellent opportunity to develop advanced legal writing, research and editing skills. Law students achieve membership qualification by academic invitation or demonstrated excellence in writing via the annual writing competition or faculty recommendation. Staff members write notes or comments of publishable quality, in satisfaction of the graduation writing requirements, and edit professional and student materials accepted for publication. Selected staff members are invited each year to publish their works in the Journal.
