Specialty Courts to Improve Public Health Outcomes

Please attend the next webinar in a series exploring important topics in public health law.

Thursday, November 21 at 1 – 2 p.m. (ET)


  • Lindsey Eldred, J.D., Research Associate, Department of Economics, Duke University
  • Beth Gifford, Ph.D., Research Scientist and Director of Program Evaluation Services, Duke University Center for Child and Family Policy
  • David Festinger, Ph.D., Director of Law and Ethics and Senior Scientist, Treatment Research Institute
  • Carla Campbell, M.D., M.S., Associate Teaching Professor, Drexel University School of Public Health

Specialty courts can be a cost-effective, efficient way of addressing public health problems because they focus on a specific area of law. This webinar presents evaluations of family courts in North Carolina, a drug treatment court in Wilmington, Delaware, and the Philadelphia Lead Court. The presenters will share their research, as well as some lessons learned from the establishment of these courts and their operation. Webinar attendees will learn how specialty courts have been used to address a set of diverse public health needs, and how they could be adopted in other municipalities. 

Each webinar is free and open to all interested parties. The Network for Public Health Law is hosting the November webinar. Register for the webinar here.

Series Is Presented in Partnership by: American Society of Law Medicine and Ethics (ASLME); Network for Public Health Law; and Public Health Law Research Program
