University of Akron School of Law

Faculty:  Marie B. Curry, J.D., M.P.H.

The Health Law and Policy Clinic (HLPC) is located at Community Legal Aid in downtown Akron.  Clinic students will participate in Legal Aid’s medical-legal partnership, called the Health, Education, Advocacy, and Law (HEAL) Project, which partners with University of Akron Nursing Center for Community Health, Akron Children’s Hospital, and Summa Health System’s Women’s Health Center.  The HEAL Project integrates lawyers (as well as paralegals and students) into the health care team (which includes doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other professionals) to resolve legal problems that are barriers to health.
