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