Center for Law and the Public’s Health
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.
Our 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 engages in graduate-level education and training, dissemination of information, and translation of research findings. We also serve as a resource for practical and scholarly information about public health law.
