Students in class at the School of Law

School of Law’s virtual lecture: “Teaching Public Health Law and Inequality”

Join Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s virtual lecture, “Teaching Public Health Law and Inequality,” Wednesday, March 23, at noon.

The lecture will describe the basic outline of a new course—”Public Health Law and Inequality”—that considers the effect of public health law and policies on marginalized populations, including instances where public health officials have created or exacerbated the problem through laws and policies that disproportionately affect the marginalizedcommunities— sometimes, even deliberately.

The course is being co-taught by the two presenters—John Culhane, the H. Albert Young Fellow in Constitutional Law, professor of law, and co-director of the Family Health Law & Policy Institute at Delaware Law School (Widener University) and visiting professor of law at the Beasley Law School, Temple University; and Joseph Farris, the assistant dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and adjunct faculty at Delaware Law School. 

Culhane and Farris will discuss how the students have become deeply involved in the course, through regular reflection papers, class discussion, and presentations, and offer some examples of how the topics are interwoven throughout the semester.

Register for the event.
