New Publication Format for 2015

The Health Law Institute is pleased to announce a new format for its flagship publication, the Health Law Journal, to take effect in 2015. In the past, the HLI published the Health Law Journal, featuring peer reviewed scholarly articles of around 10,000 words, and the Health Law Review, with shorter articles of up to 3,000 words that were generally not externally reviewed. With our new format, the Review-style articles will be peer reviewed and incorporated into the Health Law Journal in a new section. We will no longer produce two separate publications. The Health Law Journal will be published twice per year (April and October) with greater online accessibility. Read more
