This guide introduces law students to methods and resources frequently used in health law research.

Welcome to Law-Medicine Research Guide

Law-Medicine Research and Writing:

This research guide is an introduction to U.S. health law research, primarily US federal and Ohio state health law materials available at the Judge Ben C. Green Library, Case Western Reserve University.  When selecting a research topic topic, consider consulting research methodology resources in the subject area(s) you are interested in exploring.  Topics such as bioethics, public health emergency preparedness, and policy changes to Medicare/Medicaid, among others, are Health Law topics with important elements of social and economic policy as well.  For example, as the US prepares to replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 124 Stat. 119(2010), the intersection of  "law and medicine" will, once again, be embedded in the process.  

Excellent research guides on health law topics have been published online by major university Law Libraries.  Research Guides by the Georgetown University Law Library and Harvard University Law Library are frequently updated and referenced.

This research guide can be used for planning, structuring and, organizing research throughout your project.
