By Elizabeth Tobin Tyler

More than 60 leaders from across the MLP movement contributed to Poverty, Health and Law: Readings and Cases for Medical-Legal Partnership, a textbook that includes discussions, best practices, and case examples for health and legal practitioners serving vulnerable populations. The book is used by joint medical/law school courses across the country, and looks closely at the intersection of health and law across a range of social factors like health and housing, and in the context of a changing healthcare landscape.
