This pioneering book offers the most comprehensive and teachable compilation of materials on public health law now available. One of the challenges of teaching public health law is that the subject matter is not self-contained and touches every other body of law. This book solves that problem by organizing and integrating the material to address (1) cross-cutting themes in public health policy and (2) the policy tools used by public health policymakers and practitioners. In perhaps its most exciting innovation, Bonnie and Bernheim have constructed an intriguing and diverse menu of teachable units focused on specific policy problems or case studies in public health action. Each case study weaves together the perspectives of law, ethics and public policy. This book is richly interdisciplinary. Although the basic anatomy of the book is organized around the law, the materials feature the empirical perspectives of the public health sciences and draw on cross-cutting themes and normative frameworks of applied ethics and public policy. Although designed for students of law, the book can easily be adapted to courses designed for students in public health and public policy programs and other professional courses examining the role of law and public policy in advancing population health.

This unique collection of ten significant ethics rulings reveal the rich background surrounding salient cases on issues of race, gender, class, taxation, bankruptcy, defense representation, confidentiality, practicing with law partners, and greed. The story behind each case provides a look into its immediate impact as well as its continuing importance in shaping the law. This book serves as a reminder that ultimately law is about human beings, not "doctrines" or even "cases," because the human lives it addresses are real and vivid. The stories typify issues that most lawyers confront in one form or other at some time in their careers. In a striking way, the stories bring a human dimension to the pressures lawyers face, the ethical decisions they confront, the institutions they work in, and the daily choices they make.
