Established in the spring of 2011, the Mental Health Law & Policy Journal is a new topic specific journal at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School
of Law. We are the first law journal in the country to specialize in Mental Health
Law. Scholars across the nation peer review articles that are chosen by students
for publication. Those articles are student-edited, and then they are published in
The Mental Health Law & Policy Journal is dedicated to the mission of exploring, educating, and expanding scholarly discourse
within the broad spectrum of mental health law and policy. Our goal is to provide
a forum for scholarly debate and discussion on mental health legal issues and their
intersection with mental health policy.
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,
