China Health Law Initiative

The Issue in Brief

The China Health Law Initiative, a partnership between the O’Neill Institute and the Law-Asia Program at Georgetown Law, seeks to promote dialogue and exchange between the U.S. and China on health law as a tool for improving the public's health and welfare.

Based at Georgetown Law, Law-Asia's mission is to encourage scholarly communication between the faculty and students of Georgetown and their counterparts in East Asia; to focus the academic strengths of the Georgetown law and foreign policy faculty on legal issues arising out of Asia's growing economic power; to ensure that Georgetown's graduates will be equipped to practice competently and ethically in a global context shared with the nations of East Asia; and to make its expertise in law, legal pedagogy and foreign policy available to coming generations of US and Asian lawyers and policy makers.
