The sixth edition of Kenneth Wing's The Law and the Public's Health tailors discussions of law and the legal system to healthcare administration and policy students who do not have a background in law. With this text, students can familiarize themselves with American law, and prepare for the legal constraints and controversies they will likely encounter in their healthcare careers. With this familiarity, students can learn the skills needed to define relevant legal issues, to understand how these issues would be resolved, and perhaps most important, to seek out, communicate with, and evaluate legal counsel.
