The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School is the first of its kind to focus on the governance, business and practice of health care in the United States. The Center brings together leading experts and practitioners from the public and private sectors to address cutting-edge questions of health law and policy, and to train the next generation of top health lawyers, industry leaders, policymakers and academics.

The Global Health Justice Partnership

The Global Health Justice Partnership (GHJP), hosted by Yale Law School and Yale School of Public Health (YSPH), was established in 2012 to promote interdisciplinary, innovative, and effective responses to global health disparities. It is a transformative collaboration that integrates different fields in order to make critical policy interventions.
