This month we were pleased to be able to send the latest issues of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics to the printer! Our Spring issue featured the symposium “Under Attack: Reconceptualizing Informed Consent,” guest edited by Valerie Gutmann Koch and Nanette R. Elster. The symposium features ten great articles, including a piece written by JLME’s first Editor-in-Chief, George Annas. The issue also contains our usual array of independent articles and columns.
Along with this issue, we are also proud to present a special supplement, containing the papers delivered at 2016’s Public Health Law Conference, a meeting co-sponsored by our parent organization, ASLME, along with the Network for Public Health Law and generously funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. We hope you enjoy these two very special issues of JLME!Finally, we note with pride that this is now our 45th year of publication. As we march inexorably towards our half-century anniversary, we want to thank as always the many writers, editors, and contributors who have made the journal the great publication it is, and we especially want to thank our loyal readers and the wonderful members of ASLME who allow us to continue to produce this publication of which we are so very proud. Thank you.
