Webinar: Specialty Courts to Improve Public Health Outcomes
Nov. 21st, 2013, 1:00 - 2:00pm EST
- Lindsey Eldred, J.D., Research Associate, Department of Economics, Duke University

Specialty courts can be a cost-effective, efficient way of addressing public health problems because they focus on a specific area of law. This webinar presents evaluations of family courts in North Carolina, a drug treatment court in Wilmington, Delaware, and the Philadelphia Lead Court. The presenters will share their research, as well as some lessons learned from the establishment of these courts and their operation. Webinar attendees will learn how specialty courts have been used to address a set of diverse public health needs, and how they could be adopted in other municipalities.
You may qualify for CLE credit. ASLME is an approved provider of continuing legal education credits in several states. ASLME will also apply for CLE credits in other states upon request.
