About this Journal
The Journal of Health Care Law & Policy (JHCLP) was founded in 1997 and serves as a forum for the interdisciplinary discussion of leading issues in health law, medicine, and health policy. JHCLP contributors include physicians, legal scholars, health law practitioners, leaders in health policy, and experts in philosophy, public health, sociology, and other disciplines with an interest in issues related to health care.
Bolstered by the nationally-recognized Law & Health Care Program at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, JHCLP is one of the few scholarly journals that bridge the legal, public policy, and scientific fields. Publishing two issues annually, JHCLP has become renowned for disseminating solution-based articles that are pertinent to problems confronting health law practitioners and health policy makers.
