Johnson Foundation for a faculty fellowship program to promote public
health law education. Ten faculty members from law schools or
schools/programs of public health will be selected to participate in a
yearlong fellowship program designed to foster innovations in
educational programming (including clinical, externship, and other
experiential learning) and to build a strong learning community among
faculty who teach in the public health law field.
All fellows, with their deans’ support, will design and implement a
project for curricular change in public health law education at their
home institutions. Each fellow will be paired with a faculty mentor in
public health law. The fellows will begin their fellowship year by
attending an intensive 10-day educational Summer Institute on July
16-26, 2014 in Park City, Utah. Over the course of the academic
