Harvard Health Law Society is a community dedicated to exploring issues at the intersection of health and law.
HHLS is a student organization at Harvard Law School comprised of students across various Harvard institutions. We are a diverse organization united by an interest in health policy, health care law, biotechnology, bioethics, and health and human rights, with an eye towards a more just, ethical, and healthy society. HHLS connects students with health law professionals, invites speakers advancing health law issues, and coordinates groups across Harvard working to advance reforms in health care.
