Abstract

The practice of law is increasingly demanding interdisciplinary knowledge and collaboration between those trained in law and a broad range of scientific and technical fields. Public health law provides a model for the substantive integration of law with science and the way practitioners work. This commentary provides a rationale for a policy that every U.S. law school offer courses on public health law.
