Established in the spring of 2011, The Mental Health Law & Policy Journal is the first law review styled journal in the United States to specialize in mental
health law and policy. Advanced law students and graduate students from a variety of disciplines relevant
to mental health comprise the Journal. Articles published in the Journal are student edited, but must also pass a thorough peer-review process conducted by
established scholars from across the nation. The Journal is staffed by approximately
40 law and graduate students.
The objective of the Journal is to provide a unique scholarly publication dedicated to mental health law and policy
that will foster dialogue and debate on a wide range of critical issues that have
often gone under-addressed in the law.
The Lawyers as Peacemakers, Lawyers as Problem Solvers regional conference was held on October 18-19, 2012. The conference featured a number of national speakers, as well as regional presenters,
and the Mental Health Law and Policy Journal presented a symposium on "New Voices in Mental Health and Drug Courts". Click here for more information and to view a full event brochure.
