The NUALS Health Law Quarterly under the aegis of the Centre for Health Law and Policy, is inviting submissions by way of a call for papers, to be submitted by December 19.


NUALS: The National University of Advanced Legal Studies [NUALS], established by Act 27 of 2005 of the Kerala State Legislature, is a National Law University in Kochi, India for undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate legal education. NUALS strives to advance and disseminate learning and knowledge of the law, judicial processes and encourages research activities under dedicated Centres of Research.


CHLP: The Center for Health Law and Policy (CHLP) at NUALS recognises the importance of the role played by law in upholding the standards of healthcare and access to healthcare in society. Health law is an important tool that plays a critical role in shaping the behaviour and well-being of people. It focuses on structuring the role and responsibilities of the State for protecting the right to health of people.


Health law mainly focuses on the authority of the government at various jurisdictional levels to improve the health of the general population within societal limits and norms. It also analyzes legal issues in public health practice and seeks to remedy the same. The Center recognises the importance of these aspects of health law and therefore undertakes research, sensitisation and other activities to promote, analyse and suggest revisions in law where necessary.


About the Newsletter

The Centre for Health Law and Policy has introduced the NUALS Health Law Newsletter to engage the legal community in discourse on the important but often-ignored area of health law. The Newsletter, the first of its kind in the field of Health Law in India, further aims to disseminate knowledge relating to the current and historical developments in the field of health law.


The article section will consist of theoretical and critical essays. The Newsletter would also include case summaries and other legal developments in India and around the world in the area of health law, apart from articles written by experts in the field.
