Description

Join us on February 2 for the first installment of COVID-19 and the Law: Disruption, Impact, and Legacy, a Harvard-Yale forum.

How have our institutions, including the structure of our health care system and its attendant regulations, affected the evolution of the pandemic? What lasting changes have legal responses to COVID-19 introduced? Which institutions and intersectional issues have worsened or complicated the impact of and response to the pandemic? Join us for a critical reflection on changes the pandemic has introduced and their anticipated legacy.

This seminar series will consider the ethical, legal, regulatory, and broader social and institutional impacts that COVID-19 has had, as well as the longer-lasting effects it may have on our society. This first seminar in the series will focus on the interaction of COVID-19 with health law and policy.
