This is an article by Professor Richards on his experience in teaching public health law. It was published in the The Law Teacher.
This is a syllabus developed Terry O'Brien, an Assistant Attorney General of Minnesota. He is a leading expert in public health law and enforcement. Mr. O'Brien taught the course at the University of Minnesota School of Law in Spring 1996. (Note from EPR - I worked with Mr. O'Brien in the development of this course and used his syllabus in the development of my course.)
Mr. O'Brien course is predicated on the importance of traditional communicable disease control techniques. It uses tuberculosis rather than HIV infection as its paradigm disease.
PUBLIC HEALTH LAW
This syllabus was developed by Professor Linda C. Fentiman of Pace University School of Law.
This syllabus was developed by Professor Scott Burris at Temple University School of Law. In contrast to Mr. O'Brien's course, this course stresses individual liberties and raises questions about traditional communicable disease control methods. Professor Burris uses HIV and AIDS as the focus of this course.
