Health Justice Law & Policy Clinic

Learn to lawyer while serving low-income people facing cancer, changing the way health care is delivered, and advocating for population health.

The HJC is the legal partner in LegalCare at Roswell Park, a medical-legal partnership serving patients of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center who otherwise would not have access to a lawyer. 

In addition to functioning as the lead lawyers in a variety of civil legal matters, HJC student attorneys work on the "social determinants of health" - everything that contributes to health status that isn't genetics or biology - in both individual representations and projects aimed at health-enhancing systems change.
