Northeastern University School of Law Research Paper
Public health is a discipline that employs the science of epidemiology to study and explain phenomena in and affecting populations; it relies upon its own values, methodologies, and perspectives to analyze the world. The authors argue that public health perspectives and the public health implications of legal doctrines should be a component of core law school courses.
