Here at the Consortium, our goal is to support interdisciplinary collaboration on a wide variety of subjects at the intersections of law, science, and health policy. Two of the ways that we do this are:
A major focus of the Consortium is developing and supporting the research of scholars at UC Hastings and UCSF, often in collaboration with experts from leading institutions around the world. The Consortium promotes research opportunities by acting as a resource center for lawyers, scientists, clinicians, faculty members, students and educators whose research would benefit from interdisciplinary consultation.
One essential component of our mission is our commitment to public service and hands-on learning. We help to provide this through externships, the Medical-Legal Partnership for Seniors Clinic, pro bono work and more.
