Our Services

The Health Law Central website was built by Professor Sonia Allan to provide a place to access information concerning health law related matters. It provides an overview of the relevant law and is a gateway to finding more help if needed.

As an academic, Professor Allan also engages in research projects and consultancy work in the areas of health law, public health law, health regulation, and more.

(Please note, Health Law Central is an information resource, Professor Alan does not offer legal advice nor individual legal services. The information on this website is not meant to serve as, nor replace legal advice. There is a link at the bottom right-hand corner of the page to community legal centers as a starting point if you need legal assistance or advice).

As health law researchers and academics we engage in research and education.

Health Law Central was born of the idea that it would be helpful for people to have a central location as a starting point to understanding health law,
and a gateway to other sites that might otherwise have been difficult to find.
