Articles published in the Journal of Health and Biomedical Law (JHBL) are submitted by judges, legal scholars, and other authorities in various fields of health and biomedical law.  Lead Articles should be scholarly in stye and contain incisive analysis, informed opinion, and content of interest to the legal community.  JHBL seeks a diversity of subject matter and, on occasion, we will accept an article that focuses on issues from a broader social perspective rather than one that presents a more traditional style of legal analysis.

JHBL carefully considers each manuscript that we receive. When JHBL receives an article submission, the Lead Articles Editors will carefully review it and make a tentative decision regarding the article’s publication quality. After preliminary research about the author and the area of law that the article covers, the Lead Articles Editor, in conjunction with the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor, will decide whether to extend an offer of publication to the author. If the author accepts, JHBL staff members will check the substantive and technical accuracy of the piece, as well as make grammatical and stylistic suggestions. Although we extend deference to authors in stylistic matters, we cannot sacrifice the substantive and technical accuracy presented in the articles published by JHBL.

You may submit articles to the Journal of Health & Biomedical Law via email or standard mail. Footnotes should conform to the standards set forth in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed. 2010). Please visit these Web sites for more information on The Bluebook citation standards:,
