Health Law Research

Introduction

Papers for health law classes often cross disciplines. For instance, you need to find cases about a medical condition and you need to know a little about the condition itself. Or you need to find news stories about an issue and the legislation that addresses the issue.  Or you want to find what doctors and ethicists say about a treatment decision as well as what legislation provides.

One challenge is information overload. There are so many databases and indexes and journals and books that it's hard to choose where to start or sort through what you find. This guide offers some tips and suggests just a few sources.
