Comparative Health Law
This course illuminates important concepts and themes in health law by considering them from competing national and international perspectives. The course begins with the question of whether there is (or ought to be) a right to access basic health care services and, if so, from where does that right derive (international law, national constitutions, domestic legislation, etc.). The course then shifts to exploring various types of health care delivery systems employed by different nations. Additional topics include comparative analysis of approaches to medical malpractice, reproductive rights, and issues of global public health concern such as epidemics.
Grading is based primarily on a final comprehensive exam.
This course will be taught by Dean Jonathan Will.
Final class schedules for each course will be announced at a later date. Classes, however, will generally meet weekday mornings.
