About the Annual Medical-Legal Partnership Summit

Each spring, the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership, in conjunction with Boston University School of Medicine, hosts a national conference that brings together hundreds of leaders in government, law, medicine, nursing, public health and social work to share ideas, insights and best practices about how integrating legal care into health care can help combat health-harming social conditions.

The Summit aims to bridge education, practice and policy by helping participants: (1) Better understand how medical-legal partnership fits within the broader health care and civil legal aid landscapes and advances their work; (2) Develop new skills and knowledge to apply to their own medical-legal partnership practice; and (3) Network with other MLP practitioners.

It is intended for (1) civil legal aid lawyers and paralegals, community health workers, doctors, patient navigators, public health practitioners, nurses, and social workers; (2) faculty, researchers and students from law, medical, nursing, public health and social work schools; and (3) representatives from government and professional associations related to law, medicine, nursing, public health and social work. Past Summits have been approved for professional credit for doctors, lawyers, nurses, and social workers who attend.

On odd years, the Summit is held in the greater Washington, DC area to incorporate participation from government partners and to allow medical-legal partnership practitioners to meet with the Congressional Representatives. On even years, the Summit travels to target regional leadership and participation.

Applications must come from active medical-legal partnership partners, and should not be completed by hotels or tourist bureaus.
