Legal Resource Center for Public Health Policy

Our Mission

The Legal Resource Center for Public Health Policy (LRC) at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law provides pro bono technical legal assistance on a wide-range of public health issues, including tobacco regulation, injury prevention, and reduction of obesity and hypertension. Established in 2001, the LRC offers legal guidance to state and local governments, legislators, non-governmental organizations, health advocacy groups, and Maryland residents. The LRC is a grant-funded legal center that receives support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maryland Department of Health. In addition, the LRC works closely with state agencies such as the Office of the Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General, as well as members of the Maryland General Assembly.
