The O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law announces its inaugural

HIV/Health Justice Speaker Series

Please join us for a series of brownbag lunch talks from scholars, lawyers and advocates on the relationship between law, justice, and HIV/health. Each session will focus on a different aspect of the relationship between HIV/health and the criminal law including disclosure laws and criminal immunity for sex workers and people who use drugs. Speakers will consider the public health impact of these policies and whether the policies are justified.

The series will run from March 23, 2017-April 20, 2017

Georgetown University Law Center
Edward Bennett Williams Law Library Room 358
111 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20001

 

Additional details of each talk will be provided in separate announcements.
